Description

The Iberian Strings 2015 Workshop is the 6th edition of the Iberian Strings series. The meeting aims at bringing together the community of physicist working in Portugal and Spain (though not exclusively) on various aspects of string theory, gauge theories, and gravity.

This year's Workshop will take place in Salamanca (Spain) from 27 to 29 May, 2015 at the University of Salamanca.
