“Frontiers in String Phenomenology”

July 28 – August 1, 2014

Ringberg Castle, Tegernsee



The workshop will take place at Ringberg Castle, which is located on Mount Ringberg and overlooks Lake Tegernsee, one of the most picturesque locations to be found in all of southern Bavaria. The castle, which is owned and operated by the Max-Planck-Society, represents an ideal venue for scientific conferences, offering impressive architecture, displays of fine art, a music room, excellent food, spectacular views of the surrounding mountains, not to mention the fresh air and great walks. More specific information on the Ringberg Castle, including colored photographs, is available from Ringberg Castle site. The distance to the next village, Rottach-Egern, is about 3 km.

Address: Schloß Ringberg
Schloßstraße 20

The aim of the workshop is to provide an overview of the present status of the field and, in particular, to identify promising open directions and challenges for future research. On the formal side, emphasis should be given to the question of how one can combine different approaches, based for instance on non-geometric backgrounds, double field theory and conformal field theory, in order to make progress on longstanding problems, like a better understanding of RR fluxes in string theory. Thus, we plan to leave a lot of time for discussions and interactions between the participants. Apart from this we will have some overview talks and some specialized talks about recent developments.


Participation is by invitation only.

There will be no conference fee. Living expenses of the participants at Ringberg Castle will be covered by the MPI Munich and the Arnold Sommerfeld Center for Theoretical Physics. Beverages taken at the self-service bar and outside calls from the room telephones will be billed to the participants.
