Iberian Strings 2021
The Iberian Strings 2021 meeting is the twelfth meeting of the Iberian Strings series, superseding previous editions of the Workshop on Gravitational Aspects of Strings and Branes and of Northwest Strings. These meetings bring together a large part of the string theory community of Spain and Portugal with the aim of discussing and sharing recent advances in the field of strings and branes. However, all string theorists working elsewhere too are highly welcome to participate in the meeting.
Iberian Strings 2021 is organized by Instituto Superior Técnico (Lisbon, Portugal) and will be an online conference running from January 19 till January 22, 2021. This will be the third time that IST has the pleasure of hosting Iberian Strings, after already having hosted Iberian Strings 2013 and of Iberian Strings 2017.
The present edition will feature 8 invited one-hour review lectures as well as a considerable number of shorter (30 minute) talks by participants. The review lecturers are listed below. PhD students are especially encouraged to participate in the meeting
In addition, this edition of Iberian Strings will feature two outreach colloquia on the experimental and theoretical aspects of the Physics Nobel Prize 2020, by Frank Eisenhauer (Max-Planck Institute for Extraterrestrial Physics, Garching) and Roberto Emparan (ICREA, Barcelona). The links to the two outreach colloquia are here and here.
To apply for a short talk, please follow the instructions under Contacts. The deadline for submission of abstracts is January 4.
This conference is supported by CAMGSD.
