We want to discuss a range of topics related to the conformal symmetry of the field theories that are currently attracting attention and are (or may be) useful for phenomenology. A question is how conformal symmetrty can be proven and, more importantly, what it is good for: what kind of predictions can be made using exact or approximate conformal symmetry and what specific techniques exist or need to be developed to this purpose.

Main directions of such a discussion may be

  • General aspects of conformal field theories
  • Conformal bootstrap
  • Conformal symmetry on a lattice
  • Relations to Integrability (Dual conformal symmetry etc.)
  • Uses of conformal symmetry in QCD (QCD in fractional dimensions etc)

Participation is by invitation only as we want to keep the scale of the workshop small (about 20-30 people) to make it effective. There will be no proceedings and we will ask for a small conference fee of about 50 Euro to cover the costs of the coffee breaks and the conference dinner.
