This is the second in a series of schools whose purpose is to endow the new generation of mathematicians and physicists with a common language. We wish to bring together scientists working at the frontier between Geometry and Theoretical Physics able to bridge the gap between mathematics and theoretical physics while stimulating further progress.

Main speakers

  • Luigi del Debbio (Edinburgh) & Claudio Pica (Edinburgh): Discovering Conformal Field Theories on Supercomputers
  • George Papadopoulos (King’s London): Geometry and Supersymmetry
  • Nigel Hitchin (Oxford): 1. The geometry of B-fields, and 2. Generalized tangent bundles
  • Thomas Ryttov (Stony Brook) and Francesco Sannino (Southern Denmark): The Power of Duality
  • Mads T. Frandsen (Oxford): The Dark Side of the Universe
  • Andrew Swann (Southern Denmark): Geometric Duality


  • Francesco Sannino
  • Martin Svensson
