The aim of the workshop is to discuss the status and prospects in models of string phenomenology and string cosmology in light of the recent LHC and Planck data. Topics will include particle physics and GUT model building in type II string theory/F-theory and heterotic strings, string models of inflation and dark matter, and the connection to precision data from the LHC, Planck and recent gravitational wave observations by LIGO.


The workshop includes 27 talks in four days. The talks will be 25 minutes plus 5 minutes discussion.
