Aim and Motivations


This mini-workshop brings together string theorist working on the pure spinor approach to the superstring and its generalizations. This new approach is an active erea of research under rapid evolution (cf publication on SPIRES).

This meeting will take place in the conference room Marylin and Jim Simons conference centre at IHES between January 15 and Monday 17 2005.
The conference room is located behind the Pavillon de Musique.

The invited participants are supported by the IHES and Service de Physique Théorique du CEA.
