String Theory

Program Amsterdam String Workshop 2019

There will be two talks per day and each one hour long. On Monday the talks take place at 11:30 and 15:00, and from Tuesday until Friday at 10:00 and 11:30.  Follow the link below to see the schedule.

These discussions will be moderated by the postdocs that are part of the SNH collaboration.
