International Workshop on Exceptional Symmetries and Emerging Spacetime

In supergravity theories, the U duality is a different kind of symmetry from the standard ones used in particle physics. There are indications that even larger exceptional symmetries could be fundamental in our understanding of the fundamental theories. The exceptional symmetries are also connected in a significant way to the spacetime symmetries. Chaired by Prof Lars Brink of the Chalmers University of Technology, the workshop will discuss various issues with leaders in this field.  The distinguished speakers include Prof François Englert, Nobel Laureate for Physics 2013 and many others. 

We welcome all interested faculty, researchers and students to actively participate in this exciting workshop!
