ISS2009 is the 8th in the series of a successful

(Institute for Research in Fundamental Sciences)
in Tehran. The ISS series has been held in
various locations in Iran, including Isfahan,
Shiraz, by the Caspian sea-shore, in the Qeshm
Island of Persian Gulf and Tehran.
school will have two parts: pedagogical set of
mini-courses on the advanced topics of string
theory; and a workshop in the form of short
seminars on recent research of the participants.
At present we
envision that the pedagogical lectures will
cover the following topics:
Recent developments in using holographic
techniques to study QCD and condensed matter
Black hole physics.
Particle physics model bldg
within string theory, preparation for LHC.
aspects of AdS/CFT correspondence.
String inspired models of
Generalised geometry of supergravity
