Computation of conformal dimensions in planar N=4 SYM using integrability techniques was a hot topic during the last decade, with more than thousand publications devoted to it. I will tell you about our new results in this domain: Instead of the Y-system used previously, we are now able to encode the conformal dimensions, at any value of the 't Hooft coupling, in much simpler way: through certain Riemann-Hilbert problem. This appears to be not only a very beautiful mathematical setup, but also the most efficient approach to explicitly compute the dimensions. For instance, we've analytically computed the so called Konishi anomalous dimension up to 8 loops in perturbation theory. The talk will include a pedagogical overview of the subject, no special knowledge in this domain is required.
