The University of Pensylvania Research Training Group in Mathematical Physics and the Math/Physics Research Group (MPRG) are organizing the 2009 RTG Graduate Summer School 'Geometry of quantum fields and strings', that will take place on the campus of the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, June 8-20, 2009. 

This two week workshop will serve as a boot camp for training young researchers who are currently enrolled in mathematics or physics graduate programs in US institutions. The students accepted to the workshop will be trained in current exciting research directions interfacing algebraic geometry, quantum field theory, geometric representation theory, algebraic topology, and string theory. The students will be split into mentoring groups each of which will meet every morning with a math or physics faculty mentor who will guide them through interesting results and problems on a specific research chosen topic. In addition the mentors will give one or more afternoon lectures on current research accomplishments in mathematical physics.
