Broida 3340
Video link to Penn State Conference on physics with a positive cosmological constant.
Note to KITP staff: Please do not list this on the weekly KITP schedule.
Some Bits and Branes participants will be involved in this conference by video link. Other program participants are also welcome. However, Broida 3340 is a small room with limited seating. If you plan to attend, please e-mail Don Marolf to reserve your seat. We expect that only a few program participants will attend.In particular, the talks given by Maldacena, Maloney, Marolf, and
Silverstein will strongly overlap material already covered in our program (and, for Maldacena and Silverstein, there will again be strong overlap with material they will present at our own conference in week 10).

Please note: The schedule at schedule gives times on Eastern time. Local times will be 3 hours earlier.

Also note: Due to the time zone shift, the video link may not be available for talks before 1:30pm Eastern time (i.e., for the morning session). If someone has great interest in tuning in to a morning talk (early in our time zone!), please contact Don Marolf. It may be possible to make arrangements.

This talk (live here!!) will also be sent via video-link to the Penn State Conference on Physics with a positive cosmological constant. Note: Different room than on Wed/Thurs to accomodate a large number of program participants.
Fri, May 11
11:45am-3pm
Broida Hall Rm 3302
Video link to Penn State Conference on physics with a positive cosmological constant.
Note to KITP staff: Please do not list this on the weekly KITP schedule.
After Banks talk, the video link to the Penn State conference will remain open in Broida 3302 for those who wish to participate further. Again, this is the same room as Banks' talk and a different room from the Wed/Thurs. video link.
