The series of String-Math conferences has developed into a central event on the interface between mathematics and physics related to string theory, quantum field theory and neighboring subjects. The conference will take place July 1-5 in the main building of Uppsala University. There will be popular talks on July 6.
The String-Math 2019 conference is organised by the Department of Physics and Astronomy and by the Department of Mathematics of Uppsala University with the support from the grant “Geometry and Physics” from the Knut and Alice Wallenberg foundation.
