Scattering Amplitudes and Beyond - Online Reunion Conference

Coordinators: Livia Ferro, Radu Roiban, David Skinner, and Jaroslav Trnka

The study of scattering amplitudes is a driving force in the development of high-energy theoretical physics. Recent years have seen enormous progress in our understanding of the mathematical structures underlying these physical quantities. These new approaches have a profound impact both on a conceptual and on a technical level.

The aim of this event is to provide an overview of the present status of the field and to outline new directions for future research. It will bring together experts working at the intersection of scattering amplitudes with physics and mathematics to discuss the most recent developments.
