The deadline for registration was March 20
In the spirit of previous Nordic meetings, the programme will include lectures by three invited speakers as well as shorter talks by younger researchers.
Confirmed lecturers include:
(Munich): "Gauge/gravity Duality at Finite Temperature and Density"
(Berkeley): "Gravity and Quantum Criticality"
(Utrecht): "Instantons in String Theory and Compactifications"
There is financial support available to cover accommodation expenses
for Nordic PhD students (including students from Groningen and Hamburg) . Details are provided in the accommodation section. Travel expenses will have to be covered via other sources.
A dinner for all participants will be organised on Friday, April 17th. Please indicate during registration whether you would like to participate in the dinner.
