v Supergravity 2017
Supergravity 2017
Padova, May 18-19

The workshop will gather a small group of experts to discuss recent results on extensions, solutions and applications of supergravity theories to black holes, ads/cft, string phenomenology and cosmology.

Information on the previous edition is here: Supergravity 2015

People interested in attending the meeting should contact one of the organizers: Gianguido Dall'Agata, Stefano Giusto, Luca Martucci by email at name.surname@pd.infn.it.

The workshops are supported by the Stafi grant, by a University grant and by the INFN GSS Initiative.
