Higher gauge theory is an extension of gauge theory in which one adds higher degree forms to generalize the concept of connection. This nascent field has been plagued by a lack of concrete non-trivial examples relevant to physics. In this talk we review the recent progress in constructing a model for a (1,0) superconformal field theory in 6 dimensions containing a non-abelian tensor multiplet using Sen’s Lagrange multiplier approach and an object from higher gauge theory known as a string structure.
