The aim of the proposed program is to bring together world experts working at the interfaces of QFT, string theory and mathematical physics. The program naturally divides into two parts: the first part (roughly the first 4 weeks) will focus on the fundamentals of string theory and recent development of string theory, and the second part (the last 4 weeks) will focus on the algebraic and geometric aspects in mathematical physics.

Topics of interest will include pure spinor superstring, flux compactification of string theory, twistor string theory and QCD amplitude computation, the representation theory of infinite Lie algebra and the generalized complex geometry, etc.
