Welcome

 

Welcome to Strings 2008, which will be held at CERN in the year during which the LHC starts up.  This conference, the largest and most important one on String Theory, runs annually and usually draws several hundred participants, mostly active researchers in the field. The main purpose of the conference is to review the latest developments for experts, but there will also be free talks for the general public. For more details about the conference, see the links on the left.

The lectures will take place in the CERN main auditorium.  All participants must register in order to get admitted to the lecture hall. There will be about 40 talks, most of which are summaries of 30 minutes each, but each day there will also be one or two more comprehensive, one hour review talks. The speakers will be nominated by the committee, and self-applications are discouraged. The precise schedule will be announced on this web site shortly before the meeting.
