Iberian Strings 2019 is the tenth annual meeting of the Spanish and Portuguese string theory community, where recent developments in the field of supergravity, strings, branes and gauge theory are discussed. String theorists from outside the Iberian Peninsula are welcome to participate in the meeting.

Previous Iberian Strings Meetings were held in Granada (2018), Lisbon (2017), Madrid (2016), Salamanca (2015), Palencia (2014), Lisbon (2013), Bilbao (2012), Valencia (2011) and Oporto (2010).

This conference series followed up on the "Workshop on Gravitational Aspects of Strings and Branes" and the "Northwest Strings" that Iberian String theorists had been organizing since the early 2000s.

In this edition we will have plenary lectures by:

  • Mariana Graña (IPhT, Saclay)
  • Diego Hofman (Amsterdam U)
  • Kyriakos Papadodimas (ICTP, Trieste)
  • Linus Wulff (Masaryk U., Brno)

In addition, there will be contributed talks by participants.

Directions to the "Facultat de Física" can be found here.

Directions to the "Eduard Fonserè" conference room where the lectures will take place can be found here. See also this map.

The conference dinner will take place at Can Cortada on Thursday January 24. Dinner will start at 20:00 so we advise participants to be there a few minutes earlier.
