** Overview of what the workshop is about :**

String Theory is arguably the most exciting research area in modern
mathematical physics. Prolific research is being carried out in String Theory
world-over.
String Theory is known to the general public as the "Theory Of Everything",
thanks to its great success in unifying Relativity and Quantum Field Theory,
yielding a theory of Quantum Gravity.The impact of String Theory is not just
felt in physics, but also in modern mathematics. It has profound connections
with a broad spectrum
of modern mathematics, including algebraic geometry,
differential geometry, noncommutative geometry, K-theory, index theory and
representation theory. Research in String Theory has created several interesting
open problems both in this rapidly developing field, and in the related areas
of modern mathematics.

** For students :**

Both of the organisers and some other staff in Adelaide, have projects
related to String Theory for interested PhD or Honours students who would like
to do research here in Adelaide. Amongst the talks will be some
expository lectures, for students in both mathematics and mathematical physics,
at the level of beginning postgraduate students. Reasonable financial support is
available for interstate students.

** Registration :**

There is no registration. All are welcome.
