Description 
During the last few years the analytic study of scattering amplitudes has flourished due to a vivid interaction between highenergy physics and mathematics. The purpose of the workshop is to bring together leading experts working on novel methods for scattering amplitudes in perturbative gauge theory, gravity theories and string theory, reaching from formal developments to phenomenological applications. The meeting will combine several review presentations with shorter talks to discuss promising developments in this quickly evolving field. We hope that this will help forging new ideas and further boost the field. The topics include:

The schedule can be found here. Directions to Appleton Tower and other relevant locations can be found here and the building on the campus map is here Delegate Discounts: You will be provided with an Edinburgh Rewards Passport at the registration desk, this gives access to over 100 discounts and exclusive offers at a selection of the city’s restaurants, bars, tourist attractions and pre booked taxis. Details of the discounts are on the webpage www.edinburghrewards.com as well as the printed passport. The conference will be proceeded by a Summer School on advanced topics in scattering amplitudes, aimed primarily at PhD students working in the field. More senior participants are welcome to register as well! Amplitudes Conference SeriesThis event is the continuation of a sequence of conferences started in 2009.
The next conference in this series, after Edinburgh, will be:
