Institute Scholars Give Talks at Strings 2019

The Strings 2019 conference, which convened international experts and researchers to discuss string theory, took place from July 9–13, 2019, in Brussels, Belgium. The annual international Strings conferences, which have been held every year since 1995, are focal points in the field, with scientists from around the world presenting new work and reviewing the most recent developments.

Many Institute scholars past and present, including a number of Faculty in the School of Natural Sciences, participated in the conference. View their talks at the links below.
