KEK Theory Workshop

We are pleased to announce KEK Theory Workshop, an annual workshop on
string theory and quantum field theory, to be held on the following
schedule:

Date: December 6 (Tue) – 9 (Fri), 2016
Place: KEK Theory Center, Tsukuba, Japan
Web : http://research.kek.jp/group/riron/workshop/theory2016/theory2016/registrationEnglish.html

Deadline:October 21 (Fri), 2016

The list of invited speakers includes currently

Gerald V. Dunne (U. of Connecticut, to be confirmed)
Hidenori Fukaya (Osaka U.)
Dorota M. Grabowska (U. of Washington)
Koji Hashimoto (Osaka U.)
Yu-tin Huang (National Taiwan U.)
Hikaru Kawai (Kyoto U.)
Seok Kim (Seoul National U.)
Tsunehide Kuroki (Kagawa College)
Takahiro Nishinaka (YITP, Kyoto U.)
Toshifumi Noumi (Hong Kong U. of Science and Technology)
Kazutoshi Ohta (Meiji Gakuin U.)
Harold C. Steinacker (U. of Vienna)
Hiroshi Suzuki (Kyushu U.)

In addition to long talks given by the invited speakers, we plan to
have short talks as well as posters, which registered participants
can apply for.

Now the registration is open on the workshop website. Please be aware
of the deadline of registration, especially for attendances who would
like to contribute short talks and/or to request for local supports.
The banquet will cost JPY 4,000 for salaried workers and JPY 2,000 for
the others.

The participants who are planning to stay at KEK dormitory are kindly
asked to register early, since we can reserve not so many rooms this
year.

Our budget is quite limited, and we would be able to support only
the local expenses for those who do not have their own grants.
We appreciate your understanding that speakers or poster presenters
are given priority for the support.

We hope the workshop will provide a valuable opportunity to have
active discussions on various fundamental problems in theoretical
physics related to superstrings, supersymmetric gauge theories, black
hole physics, quantum field theories, condensed matter physics and so on.

This year, we put special emphasis on new attempts to realize
chiral fermions on the lattice.

We are looking forward to your participation.

Organizers:
S. Iso, Y. Kitazawa, M. Natsuume, J. Nishimura, M. Hatsuda, K. Hamada,
S. Mizoguchi, Y. Ito, S. Shiba, H. Shimada, H. Muraki, M. Matsuda,
T. Sakaguchi, T. Aoki, R. Kojima, H. Ohta, N. Kan, S. Yokoo.
