*String Seminars in Trieste* is a monthly activity organized jointly by the High energy
physics groups of ICTP and SISSA. Each event consists of two seminars given by two external speakers. The aim is to gather
all theoretical physicists working in string theory and related topics in the Trieste area, and have the opportunity to
get updated on what's going on in our field world-wide.

The meetings will take place either at ICTP or SISSA, alternately. Look here for the ICTP/SISSA shuttle schedule.
