The workshop starts on Friday morning and ends on Saturday midday. Coffee breaks will be organized in the morning and in the afternoon. A more detailed schedule will be published in May.

The aim of Stringmasters is to stimulate the creation of spontaneous working groups to tackle the problems presented. So participants are encouraged to come to the meeting equipped with problems and interesting questions.

Participants of StringMasters are free to interact with each other or to form new research groups, as they see fit. Participants who have open problems to present will be asked to do so in an informal manner. Researchers will be encouraged to form groups working on those problems which find enough interest. People will be free to switch groups.
