Southern California Strings Seminar

We’re hosting the next Southern California Strings Seminar here at USC. It will be on Friday 6th May. I’ve been working on it a lot over the last several days* and put the finishing touches on the arrangements just this morning.

scss_fall_2010_6_small There’ll be no Saturday morning component this time, since there’s yet another huge event down at USC this weekend, and things will be rather disrupted, I understand, as there’ll be lots of people, street closures, and so forth**. (It is the Revlon Run/Walk event in exposition park, across the street from us, an excellent event!)

So I’ve packed five exciting talks into Friday, and I think it is going to be fun! Here’s the schedule:


09:00 – 09:15 Welcoming remarks and Orientation

09:15 – 10:15 Eric Perlmutter (UCLA) “Schrodinger Holography: Universality and Exactness”
10:15 – 10:30 discussion

10:30 – 10:45 coffee and cookies

10:45 – 11:45 Tameem Albash and Clifford V. Johnson (USC) “Toward Quark and Meson Dynamics in QGP Via N=2*”
11:45 – 12:00 discussion

12:00 – 13:45 lunch

13:45 – 14:45 Michael Gutperle (UCLA) “Higher Spin Black Holes”
14:45 – 15:00 discussion

15:00 – 15:15 coffee and cookies

15:15 – 16:15 David R. Morrison (UCSB)  “Supergravity and F-theory vacua in six dimensions.”
16:15 – 16:30 discussion

16:30 – 16:45 coffee and cookies or tea and biscuits

16:45 – 17:45 Stephan Stieberger (MPP)  “The Harmony of Superstring Amplitudes: Implications from/to Field-Theory”
17:45 – 18:00 discussion


It’ll all be at DML 233 on the main campus at USC. [I expect I’ll update the online SCSS website sometime middle/late tomorrow, along with this post.] Done. Schedule on the site here.
