Title: G2(2) Dualities, Black Strings, and Kerr-CFT


 In this talk I will discuss the use of the hidden G2(2) symmetry of minimal D=5 supergravity to construct black strings. Using these black strings and the associated dual CFT, I will present a proposal for the microscopic realization of the Kerr-CFT correspondence.
