    Fourth Joburg Workshop on String Theory

    Message received from Prof Robert de Mello Koch for the LOC

    Dear Friends and Colleagues,

    We are happy to announce that the University of the Witwatersrand will run a one week school focusing on the
    AdS/CFT correspondence. The target audience is MSc and PhD students. We aim to provide students and young
    researchers the opportunity to broaden their skills and to introduce them to this exciting field. Interested students
    can find the webpage here: http://neo.phys.wits.ac.za/workshop_4/index.html.

    Support for students automatically covers the local accommodation costs during the school. There is limited funding
    to support the travel costs of some participants. Special consideration will be given to women and applicants from
    historically disadvantaged backgrounds.

    The number of places at the school is limited, but there are still a few places. Students wanting to participate should
    send an email to Mrs. Maddalena Teixeira at Maddalena.Teixeira@wits.ac.za. With your email, indicate if you require
    support for travel costs, include a CV and a letter of recommendation from your supervisor.

    Best regards,
    Robert de Mello Koch for the LOC
