In the last two decades integrability has found an unexpected application to describe the planar limit of conformal, higher dimensional gauge theories. The most outstanding example is that of the supersymmetric N=4 gauge theory in four dimension, known to be dual to string theory on AdS5 x S5 background. In this talk I will explain how the computation of correlation functions of gauge-invariant operators can be done by using a geometrical decomposition in terms of non-local form factors, and give a few exemples of problems that are left to solve.
