Description: 

Quantum field theories are of fundamental importance in theoretical physics, but they are also notoriously hard to define. For conformal field theories the "bootstrap" philosophy constitutes a first-principles approach whose real power has been understood only very recently. I will review the remarkable progress we have made in this direction, with an emphasis on supersymmetric conformal field theories.
