String Conferences for the 2019/20 Academic Year

I’ve had to narrow my list of string conferences that I would like to attend during the 2019/20 academic year. In the best case, it is likely this year I will only be able to attend one more in person. So hopefully most, if not all, of the following conferences will be live streamed or recorded.

With the theme of my research this year, I’ve prioritised my list of conferences to be mainly on the topic of string geometry. That said, the Swampland conference in August 2020 organised by Eran Palti, Daniel Kläwer, Irene Valenzuela, and Timo Weigand is also one I have highlighted.

Here’s my current list along with links (where available), in order of date,

‘Supergeometry, Supersymmetry, and Quantisation’ (16-19 Dec 2019) at The University of Luxembourg (Esch-sur-Alzette, Luxembourg).

‘Geometry and Duality’ (2-6 Dec 2019) at the Max Planck Institute for Gravitational Physics in (Potsdam, Germany).

‘Strings and Geometry’ (28 April – 12 May 2020) at Utrecht University (Utrecht, The Netherlands).

‘Strings 2020’ (29 June – 03 July 2020) at the University of Cape Town (Cape Town, South Africa).

‘Eurostrings 2020’ (24 – 28 August) at the University of Oxford (Oxford, England).

‘Mathematical Foundations of the Swampland’ (17 August – 4 Sept 2020) at the Mainz Institute for Theoretical Physics, Johannes Gutenberg University (Mainz, Germany). This is the Swampland conference being organised by Eran Palti alongside Daniel Kläwer, Irene Valenzuela, and Timo Weigand.

I may add or subtract from this list over the coming weeks, depending on ongoing research commitments and a number of other variables. As things stand, it looks to be an exciting year.
