Strings is an annual conference gathering more than 500 researchers in string theory from all around the world. Since the 1980s, it has grown to be the largest and most important conference in the field. International experts are invited to review the most recent achievements in string theory and discussions between the participants lead to new developments and insights. Following the tradition of Strings conferences, public lectures will be given presenting aspects of string theory to a general audience. This is the first Strings conference organized in Sweden.

The university of Uppsala is the oldest university in the Nordic countries, founded already in 1477. The city of Uppsala is famous for its academic atmosphere and vivid student life. The creative environment and the closeness to Stockholm and Arlanda airport have also led to a rapidly expanding business sector and a lively cultural scene.


We look forward to seeing you all in Uppsala!
