Supersymmetry Breaking in String Theory

10 - 14 March 2014

Organisers: Riccardo Argurio (Brussels), Matteo Bertolini (SISSA), Michela Petrini (Paris) and Sakura Schafer-Nameki (KCL)

Programme | Participants


Supersymmetry breaking in string theory is a crucial issue, both for formal and more applied aspects within string phenomenology, and in string theory more generally. Any string theoretic setup aiming at addressing phenomenological issues, both in particle physics and in cosmology, has to address supersymmetry breaking. On the other hand, supersymmetry is so deeply rooted in string theory that it is difficult to break it without spoiling many desirable features, or at least without losing analytical control. For instance, stability of non-supersymmetric solutions or frameworks in string theory is often an unresolved issue.

This workshop is aimed at bringing together experts in the field, to discuss the current status of supersymmetry breaking in string theory and future directions of the field. There will be morning sessions with overview talks and a discussion session. The afternoons are reserved for individual discussions as well as shorter talks on more specialised subjects.

Supported by:

This workshop is by invitation only. However, if you are a researcher in the subject and would like to attend at your own expense, please contact Sakura Schafer-Nameki at sakura.schafer-nameki[at][dot]uk.
