DESCRIPTION:Quantum Gravity meets Lattice QFT\n\nAdS/CFT has been one of t
he most fruitful approaches to analyse the qualitative aspects of the dyna
mics of strongly interacting QFTs\, most prominently QCD. As an approach t
o understanding the early stage of high energy heavy ion collisions\, but
also proton-proton collisions at LHC\, it is\, in fact\, one of very few s
ystematic approaches. However\, it is not clear how reliable the descripti
on is quantitatively\, because QCD is not a ${\\cal N}=4$\, supersymmetric
\, conformal\, SU(N) gauge theory with infinite N and the QCD coupling con
stant is of limited size. Individual contributions exist on both sides of
the duality calculating the size of the relevant corrections (like the per
turbative calculation of quantum corrections on the gravity side for finit
e N and finite coupling strength\, the lattice simulation of SU(N) gauge t
heories with N>3\, the calculation of perturbative corrections from non co
nformality on the QFT side\, lattice simulation with partial supersymmetry
...) but no systematic effort. In addition\, more general scenarios for
gauge/gravity dualities have been studied\, extending beyond the realms o
f AdS\, CFT\, and string theory. The probability is high that quantitative
contact can only be made on the basis of non-perturbative calculations on
both sides\, which is a very tall order. On the QFT side\, lattice QFT is
the best established tool to do so\, while on the quantum gravity side re
summed string theory is the main approach. In addition\, there is an incre
ased recent interest within loop quantum gravity in holographic computatio
ns.\n\nThe aim of the workshop is to bring some of the internationally lea
ding experts in these fields together\, formulate a more systematic strate
gy\, and realize a few projects in the direction of a quantitative applica
tion of quantum gravity techniques to QCD in subsequent months.\n\n \n\n
