The general goal of the workshop is to bring together experts in different aspects of String Theory, focusing on its duality symmetries and generalized geometry. The last decade has witnessed a growth in the activity in the field, mostly after the advent of the so-called Generalized Geometry and Double/Exceptional Field Theories. In these frameworks the string dualities are promoted to manifest symmetries, highlighting novel generalized geometric structures and exposing emergent stringy physical phenomena. 


The workshop will provide a friendly environment to create overlaps between the more formal and physical approaches, find applications of these frameworks, and move forward towards solving important open problems. These include: consistent characterizations of non-geometric backgrounds in string theory, dualities in the absence of isometries and localization in winding space, generalized geometrization of exotic branes, non-associativity and non-commutativity of compact coordinates, duality constraints on higher-derivative interactions, non-Abelian T-duality, implications for the string landscape, etc. 


String Dualities and Geometry is expected to help focusing the field and consolidating progress. We hope to welcome you in Bariloche in January.
