Continuous Advances in QCD Workshop


The seventh bi-annual "Continuous Advances in Quantum Chromo Dynamics" (QCD) Workshop will be held May 11-14, 2006 in the Cowles Auditorium of the Hubert H. Humphrey Center on the University of Minnesota West Bank Campus.

The workshop is organized by the Fine Theoretical Physics Institute and seeks to summarize recent developments in quantum chromodynamics and gauge theories at large. "Continuous Advances in QCD" brings together theorists whose research is focused on a large variety of topics at the cutting edge of QCD, including supersymmetric tools, holographic descriptions of QCD, large-N methods, heavy quarks, and others.

Invited speakers include A. Polyakov, N. Arkani-Hamed, Z. Bern, G. Dvali, I. Klebanov, M. Strassler, and J. Sonnenschein, and many others. Sessions will begin at 9:00 a.m. on Thursday, May 11.
