The purpose of this workshop is to exchange ideas, to promote collaboration, and to discuss recent developments in the swampland program. Specifically, the workshop will aim to bring together experts working on various different subjects of string theory and quantum field theory and to put them into the perspectives of the swampland program. 

The topics that will be discussed in the workshop in relation with the swampland program include: 

  • Holography
  • Symmetries, Cobordisms and Branes
  • Geometry of String Compactifications
  • Bootstrap, Causality and Unitarity
  • Quantum Aspects of Black Holes 
  • Particle Physics and Cosmology 

We will have a lax schedule with around 3 talks per day so that there may be ample time for discussion and interaction.  

Note that the workshop will be followed by the annual conference, String Phenomenology 2023.

This event is jointly organized by CERN-TH and Korea as part of the CERN-Korea collaboration program.
