Great Lessons from Exact techniques and Beyond
While we are mindful of the pandemic, we confirm that this event will be held in person in the period
September 21 - 25, 2020.
In view of the current situation special health and safety regulations will apply based on national and local guidelines. The conference will take place at the Teatro Verdi in Padova to ensure physical distancing of attendees.
Exact techniques are invaluable tools to advance our understanding of physical phenomena. They have played a crucial role in the development of theoretical physics since its very inception, and continue to unveil deeper and deeper mathematical and physical structures thereof. We will review major latest advances obtained by means of exact techniques, with emphasis on
- Exact results in string and quantum field theory
- Exact results in AdS/CFT
- Integrable models, their deformations and applications
- Two- and higher-dimensional CFTs and SCFTs
- Bootstrap approaches to CFT and QFT
- Scattering amplitudes
Given the broad and inter-disciplinary scope of the meeting, speakers will strive to be particularly pedagogical. The program will also include ample time for discussions. Doctoral students are particularly invited to attend.

IMPORTANT: beware of hotel scams!
We noted that some "companies" look up the names of speakers and participants of upcoming conferences, and call them on their office phones (or contact via email) offering to arrange their accommodation "on behalf of the organisers". They typically request your credit card number or ask for a bank transfer. If someone contacts you with such a request claiming to act on behalf of the organisers, they are lying and attempting to scam you. In case of doubts please contact Organizers on their personal email addresses before taking any action.
