A small symposium will be held on Monday October 1 in Groningen to mark the PhD defence of Giuseppe Dibitetto earlier that day. The program will take place during the afternoon in the Harmoniegebouw (which is very close to the Academiegebouw where the defence and reception afterwards will be held). The (tentative) program is as follows:
14.00 Henning Samtleben (ENS Lyon) - SO(9) supergravity
14.45 Stefan Vandoren (Univ. of Utrecht) - Lifshitz holography for undoped Weyl semimetals
15.30 - 16.00 Coffee and tea
16.00 Andrea Borghese (Univ. of Groningen) - The many surprises of maximal supergravity
in room 1312.0018 of the Harmoniegebouw (Oude Kijk in 't Jatstraat 26).
Everyone is free to attend the symposium and no registration is required. Needless to say, in addition everybody is very welcome during Giuseppe's PhD defence as well, which starts at 11.00 in the Academiegebouw (Broerstraat 5). In case you want a hardcopy of his thesis, please send him a message (g [dot] dibitetto [at] rug [dot] nl).
