XVII European Workshop
on String Theory 2011
INFN Bicocca

Archivio Antico (Palazzo del Bo)
Padua, Italy, 5-9 September 2011

This is the annual international workshop organized by members of the European Marie-Curie Research Training Network "Constituents, Fundamental Forces and Symmetries of the Universe". Though the network officially ended in 2008, it has created strong research and training links between its participants and the workshop is part of on-going activities of this informal EU collaboration. The last in this series of workshops has been held in Madrid, Spain (14-18 June, 2010) and the previous three were organized in Zurich (Switzerland, 2009), Varna (Bulgaria, 2008) and Valencia (Spain, 2007).

The Workshop will take place in the Conference Hall "Archivio Antico" of the main building of Padua University, Palazzo del Bo, situated in the historical center of Padua.
