Scattering amplitudes have played a central role in quantum field theory since its inception. Recent years have seen a remarkable advance in our understanding and in our ability to compute scattering amplitudes, both for theoretical and phenomenological purposes. At the peak of the Nordic summer, Nordita and Stockholm will serve as hosts for the international conference Amplitudes 2016. The conference is devoted to exciting developments in the field of scattering amplitudes and related subjects. This includes, but is not limited to: amplitudes in gauge, gravity, and string theories, AdS/CFT and integrability, integrand structure of SYM and supergravity, IR and UV behavior, mathematics of polylogarithms and integrals, Grassmannians and twistor string approaches, symmetries and soft theorems, and connections to LHC phenomenology.

Poster contributions (pdf files).




The conference talks are located to the F2 lecture hall on the KTH campus, 15 min walk from Nordita, in the northern part of central Stockholm.
Design: Josh Nohle and Hans Mühlen
The conference is supported through funding from Nordita, Uppsala University, Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation and the WennerGren Foundations.
Amplitudes 2016 at Nordita is part of a conference series that begun in 2009. Previous and upcoming conferences are:
