String theory provides a candidate unified theory of fundamental interactions. String phenomenology is the branch of string theory that aims to connect this subject to particle physics and cosmology. The ultraviolet consistency of string theory motivates new ideas for low energy physics and provides a rich structure of constraints on low energy theories, going beyond the requirements of low energy effective field theory.
String Pheno 2014 will be an opportunity for bringing together researchers aiming to connect fundamental and observable physics. The conference includes invited plenary talks as well as parallel sessions. We particularly welcome and encourage the participation of younger researchers.
This is the 13th conference in the String Phenomenology Conference series.
