The topical workshop "Aspects of Higher-spin theories" from 23rd to 25th May 2016 will bring together experts on higher-spin theories, conformal field theories, AdS/CFT correspondence and string theory. It will focus on Foundations of higher-spin theories AdS/CFT dualities in diverse dimensions Quantum properties of higher-spin theories Higher-spin theories and string theory Broken higher-spin symmetries and condensed matter physics A conference dinner (included) is planned on the second evening of the workshop. The workshop is a part of the MIAPP programme "HIGHER-SPIN THEORY AND DUALITY" which will take place 2 May – 27 May 2016.
