YRISW 2022: Taming the string worldsheet
The Young Researchers Integrability School and Workshop (YRISW) is an ongoing series of meetings devoted to review the latest advances in exact techniques in theoretical physics, at the frontier with mathematics. Past editions have focused on integrable quantum field theories, exact results in AdS/CFT, two dimensional conformal field theory, and superconformal field theories. The aim of the 2022 school is the investigation of exact approaches on the string worldsheet by conformal field theory and integrability techniques. The importance of string theory as a candidate theory of quantum gravity underscores the need to develop techniques to effectively and exactly computing generic observables in generic setups. This turns out to be extremely non-trivial. The school aims to explain why this is the case and what can be done by using cutting-edge techniques in theoretical physics.
