(IAS, Princeton) at 10:15 on Monday Feb 14, followed by minicourses of
Prof. Eric Laenen (Utrecht/Nikhef/Amsterdam)
on "All-Order Aspects of QCD" and Prof. Peter van Nieuwenhuizen (Stony

Gauge Theories". There will also be short talks by 27 Dutch doctoral
students and a guest lecture on Thursday Feb 17
at 18:00 by Prof. George Matsas (IFT-UNESP) on "Low-Energy Quantum

Edward Witten gave a lecture with the same title "String Theory And The Universe" at the Institute of Physics' Newton prize ceremony last year, it's available online:

http://www.iop.org/resources/videos/lectures/page_44292.html

He's introduced by Michael Green and gives a historical overview of the develoment of String Theory and some brief comments about its current status and prospects. Those who have studied QFT and String Theory will probably enjoy the overview, it doesn't go into details for the unitiated (M-Theory is described as a ??? (sic) theory encompassing five string theories and 11-dim SUGRA)

(There are other lectures at the site from people like Alan Guth)
