Many members of the Center of Mathematical Sciences and Applications recently attended the Strings 2016 Conference hosted at Tsinghua University in Beijing. This week-long conference featured talks by several of the world’s most prominent string theorists, including Director of IAS Robbert Dijkgraaf, Fields Medalist Edward Witten, and Nobel Laureate David Gross. In addition to the plenary speakers, the conference also organized a gong show featuring short presentations from students, poster sessions, several parallel sessions featuring talks by junior researches, and public talks. The conference was hugely successful, with several hundred attending from across the international physics and math community.
