First/Second/Third announcement

CIMPA Research School: Algebraic and geometrical methods in string theory

Buenos Aires, Argentina. October 28 – November 8, 2019

The CIMPA Research School “Algebraic and geometrical methods in string theory” will take place in Buenos Aires, Argentina, from October 28 till November 8, 2019, hosted by the International Centre for Advanced Studies (ICAS, UNSaM). The main goal of the School is to provide an introduction to many of the mathematical fields relevant within the context of string theory, as well as some background on string theory itself.

The topics include:

- Vertex algebras and their modules,

- Representations of infinite dimensional Lie algebras,

- Calabi-Yau manifolds and Landau-Ginzburg models,

- Loday algebras and derived brackets,

- Hochschild cohomology,

- Hopf algebras and quantum field theory,

- Quantum field theory on curved spacetimes,

- Generalized geometry and supersymmetric spaces,

- String compactifications and fluxes,

- Wess-Zumino-Novikov-Witten models.

There will be seven long courses, as well as five minicourses. They will not only provide the basic material but also some of the current research trends in the respective fields. The school is specially addressed to graduate and undergraduate students, both in mathematics and physics, but also to young researchers attracted by possible interactions with the topics previously described.

The registration to the school is open on the webpage:

Travel and accommodation grants for students:

In order to apply for a travel and/or accommodation grant from CIMPA, students from the region should not only fill in the registration form in the school webpage but also apply for financial support in We recall that only those students and research teaching staff of an institution located in a developing country different from the country of the school are eligible to a financial support from CIMPA.
