If you have a question about this talk, please contact Dr. Carl Turner.

In the first part of the talk I will discuss a proposal for the CFT dual of string theory on AdS3 x S3 x S3 x S1. The proposed dual satisfies a number of non-trivial consistency conditions; in particular it matches the BPS spectrum of supergravity that we also determined from first principles. In the second half of the talk, I will explain how the higher spin symmetry of string theory on AdS3 at the tensionless point can be directly understood from a world-sheet perspective.

This talk is part of the Quantum Fields and Strings Seminars series.
