The goal of this conference is to bring together the experts in the field of F-theory from around the globe, both from the physics and the mathematics community, in order to exchange ideas about recent progress and future endeavours. F-theory is a non-perturbative realisation of string theory that is written in the language of algebraic geometry, and has always benefitted greatly from interdisciplinary interactions such as this conference.
Phenomenological aspects of F-theory particle physics, including Grand Unification, proton decay, selection rules, Yukawa couplings
Analysis of effective theories arising from F-theory compactifications to various dimensions
Dualities to other string theories
New mathematical advances including geometrical aspects of elliptic fibrations, Matrix Factorisation, resolution of singular manifolds, Calabi-Yau four-folds and five-folds.
