		2006 ICTP Prize Lecture by Professor Rajesh Gopakumar
		 "From Fields to Strings"           

Abstract: In this talk I will outline a research program which attempts 
to understand the deep connection between quantum field theories and 
string theories, from first principles. After describing the motivation 
for this study, I will briefly sketch how this connection might be 
made. The basic idea will be a reorganisation of the worldline Feynman 
diagrams of the field theory into worldsheets of the dual string 

All are most cordially invited to attend.
