Understanding Supersymmetry (SUSY) breaking is a crucial aspect of connecting String Theory to the real world. SUSY breaking may occur at the string scale, in an intrinsically quantum-gravitational manner, or at much lower energies. Either way, it remains extremely challenging to construct setups that are both phenomenologically valuable and fully under control.
The purpose of the present workshop is to review the current state of SUSY breaking in String Theory and elaborate on its connections to the Swampland Program. The phenomenological implications of these topics are relevant for the hierarchy problem and cosmological constant problem, as well as for understanding the broader context of String Theory in relation to our universe.
