Title: AdS/CFT integrability and non-planarity

Abstract: In the AdS/CFT correspondence it is hard to compute observables that are
not protected by supersymmetry. In the past decade, this was achieved
for two-point functions in the planar limit by using techniques borrowed
from the theory of integrable models. Only more recently we realised
integrability might also allow us to compute higher-point correlation
functions, at least in N=4 super Yang-Mills and in the planar limit.
Even more recently, it was understood that the techniques that we
developed for higher-point functions may also be used to compute
non-planar observables. In my blackboard talk I will review this recent
