Integrability, Dualities and Deformations

Two series of seminars took place in Autumn 2020 and Spring 2021. You can find slides and recordings of these talks on our Archive page.

Currently, we are organising the Integrability, Dualities and Deformations conference to be held in Santiago de Compostela from August 30th to September 3rd 2021. For more information see the website:

If you are interested in receiving updates about either the conference or any future online seminars you can join the mailing list by e-mailing with your name, institution and e-mail address.

Welcome to the online seminar series on integrability, dualities and deformations

Recent years have seen significant progress in the understanding of deformations of integrable string sigma models, their relation to non-abelian and Poisson-Lie duality, and their possible AdS/CFT interpretation in terms of non-commutative field theory. Moreover, these models can also be naturally recast in terms of double and exceptional field theory. As such, numerous interesting new connections between these different research areas are developing, promising to shed light on various important open questions.

The goal of this seminar series is to bring together experts from the fields of

  • Deformations of integrable models

  • Worldsheet dualities and extended field theories

  • Non-commutative and non-associative QFT

  • Quantum integrable systems in gauge/gravity duality

to facilitate exchange of ideas, collaboration, and the development of new insights across these fields.


Meetings take place every two weeks on Wednesdays at 11:00 Berlin/Madrid/Zurich time (currently 10:00 UTC). See below for instructions on how to join, and a calendar of upcoming seminars. Each meeting consists of two talks by different speakers: the first at 11:00 and the second at 11:45. The talks are 30 minutes each with up to 15 minutes for discussion and a short break.
