Southeastern regional
mathematical string theory meeting

This is the webpage for the southeastern regional mathematical string theory meeting, held every six months (early April and early October), often at Duke University but occasionally elsewhere.

Next meeting:

We currently plan to resume regional meetings with a meeting at Duke University on Saturday, October 8, 2022.

Speakers tentatively include Mithat Unsal (NCSU), Daniel Robbins (University at Albany), Patrick Jefferson (MIT), Callum Brodie (VT), and James Wheeler (Duke).

We will try to broadcast the meeting on zoom. If you want to watch the talks remotely, email Eric Sharpe for the zoom coordinates.

Tentative schedule:

Videos of all the fall 2022 talks are available here.

Group photos from the fall 2022 meeting are here, here, here, here.

The organizers of this meeting are committed to building a diverse, welcoming, and inclusive research environment. We support the non-discrimination statement of the AWM, which can be found here. Any attendee or speaker is welcome to contact any of the organizers directly if he or she feels harassed or excluded.
