Higher Spins, Strings and Dualities

Dario Francia, Igor Klebanov, Matthias Gaberdiel, Augusto Sagnotti, Dmitri Sorokin, Mikhail Vasiliev
This workshop program brought together experts and young researchers from all over the world with the aim of fostering exchange on a number of topics that lie at the interface between String Theory, considered to be a promising candidate for a unified theory of fundamental interactions, and the theory of higher-spin fields. Key problems addressed included issues related to the roots of String Theory, the AdS/CFT correspondence, the underlying higher spin geometry and symmetries, the consistency
