Higher Spin Symmetries and Conformal Bootstrap
6-7 November 2014
From a theoretical point of view, conformal field theories (CFTs) are crucial for our understanding of the renormalization group, because they represent endpoints of Lorentz-invariant renormalization group flows. This workshop will focus on the renewed interest in conformal field theories in more than two space-time dimensions, both abstractly through the conformal bootstrap program, as well as in relation with the higher-spin theories.
