Holography Workshop Leuven



KU Leuven


On May 16 2022 we will have a 1-day workshop on Holography in Leuven.
This event will serve the dual purpose of a post-pandemic restart of the
Belgian leg of the Dutch-Belgian holography meetings and a celebration
of the recent recognition of Juan Maldacena with a doctor honoris causa
at KU Leuven. We would like to invite all members of the Dutch-Belgian
hep-th community to participate in this workshop. The workshop will take place at the Irish College in the center of Leuven (Janseniusstraat 1,
