The aim of this workshop is to discuss new methods and developments in string theory. By now this workshop is a tradition: we meet to discuss exciting results in our community  in the beautiful city of Amsterdam.  We will try to decode black holes (those that burn and those that don't); we'll admire the elegance of exact results in supersymmetric theories and strongly coupled systems; recent development in string-pheno and cosmology; and last but not least, we'll hear the latest news about holography and its applications.

We will provide a relaxed and open environment. There will be plenty time for discussion among participants: our priority is to have the opportunity to create, collaborate and inspire!


Members of the 'Scanning New Horizons' program ( are the organisers of this year's workshop.


The workshop will take place from July 15th until July 26th, 2019.
