This Workshop is the fourteenth conducted by the Simons Center for Geometry and Physics at Stony Brook and the nineteenth in the series Simons Summer Workshops. This year’s summer workshop will focus on Diverse Facets of String Theory. String theory has developed in many directions, giving rise to a rich spectrum of subspecialties. In this year’s summer workshop, we hope to help researchers reconnect and cross-fertilize by inviting specialists in different areas to present the underlying stringy basis of their work, and describe the state of the art in the newest developments. Topics will include the AdS/CFT correspondence and operator algebras, SCFTs and topological modular forms, the bootstrap, higher form and non-invertible symmetries and category theory, the Swampland, new developments in stringy phenomenology, etc.
