Integrability in Gauge and String Theory (IGST) 2020 by videoconference

From*August 24-28 of 2020*,  the annual Integrability in Gauge and 
String Theory (IGST) conference will be held online.

Integrable structures are usually present in one or two dimensional 
models — from two dimensional condensed matter materials to string 
theory€” which can be solved exactly. Some higher dimensional  systems  
such as supersymmetric Yang-Mills theories in four dimensions, fishnet 
theories and some matter Chern-Simons theories in three dimensions are 
dual to integrable two dimensional models. This leads to an important 
non-perturbative formulation of such higher dimensional theories which 
provide formidable lampposts in the space of non-perturbative quantum 
field theories. General lessons from these exactly solvable toy models 
can be applied more broadly providing valuable intuition for our 
understanding of quantum field theory. As usual with the Integrability 
in Gauge and String theory conference series, we will invite a broad 
spectrum of experts from nearby fields, from pure integrabilists to 
practitioners of other exactly solvable techniques to condensed matter 
physicists. This year, given the joint two week program, there will also 
be a strong focus on applications to the conformal bootstrap.

The main focus of this conference (series) is on the use of 
Integrability to provide full solutions to strongly interacting gauge 
and string theories. Notable examples of such theories include maximally 
supersymmetric Yang-Mills theory and their recently discovered fishnet
