This is the kick-off meeting of the "International Research Network on Quantum Fields and Strings" (IRN:QFS), which was created in January 2020 under the auspices of CNRS. Pending a larger international meeting, the goal of this first workshop is to gather the french community working on these topics, and give exposure to the junior members.
The meeting was initially due to take place at Fédération Denis Poisson in Tours in March 2020, but was postponed due to the pandemic. It will take place virtually on June 9-11, 2021. Connection details will be sent to registered participants only.
In order to reduce screen time, the meeting will take place in mornings only, starting with a one-hour review talk at 9.30 am each morning, followed by a 30min break and two hours of short presentations by postdocs.
