This workshop is going to be devoted to the study of Conformal Field Theories and Renormalization Group Flows, following the tradition of "Back to the Bootstrap" meetings. The topics will include:

  • Conformal Bootstrap approach to Conformal Field Theories in diverse dimensions (numerical and analytical techniques).
  • Applications to specific theories of interest to Condensed Matter, Statistical, and High-Energy Physics.
  • Applications to Supersymmetric Conformal Field Theories.
  • Constraints on Renormalization Group Flows in the spirit of the a- and F-theorems.
  • Tools for making predictions about strongly coupled Renormalization Group Flows.
  • Connections to the Anti-de Sitter/Conformal Field Theory correpsondence 
    and Quantum Gravity in Anti-de Sitter space.
  • Connections to N=4 Super-Yang-Mills theory and integrability.

The meeting will be very informal with plenty of time for discussions.
