String theory provides a unified framework to describe the fundamental particles and interactions of nature. String phenomenology is the branch of string theory that aims to connect this subject to experimental particle physics and observational cosmology. In light of new data from the LHC, as well as important results from astrophysics and cosmology, such as those coming from LIGO and DES, it is the time to fully explore the connections between the properties of string compactifications and the forthcoming new data.
String Phenomenology 2017 is a forum to bring together diverse researchers aiming to bridge the gap between fundamental theory and observable physics. The conference includes invited plenary talks as well as two afternoons of parallel sessions. We particularly welcome and encourage the participation of younger researchers. This is the 16th conference in the String Phenomenology Conference series.
