Quark Confinement

The workshop will focus on recent developments in our understanding of color confinement and QCD strings from a wide variety of perspectives, ranging from field theory to string theory, including both analytic and numerical techniques.  The workshop is planned as in-person event.  We plan to have about 40 active participants, but the number of talks per day will be kept limited so that there
is plenty of time for informal interaction and collaboration.

Participation at this workshop is by invitation only.  Invited participants can confirm their attendance using this Qualtrics Registration form.

From there you will transfer to the Green Line and take that east to East Bank Station or Stadium Village Station. Find more information on the Light Rail Transit page of the MSP website

Shuttle service is available from MSP, however the waits can be long and cost may be high at $20.00 - $73.00 depending on whether you share the ride or travel alone. To learn more see the Van and Shuttle service page of the MSP website

Taxi services are available at MSP, including Uber and Lyft. It will take approximately 30 - 60 minutes to get to campus depending on traffic and will cost between $25.00 - $60.00. Visit the Ground Transportation page of the MSP website for more information on app-based ride services.
