This ICTP Latin-American String School, now in its 6th edition, will have a duration of two-weeks and will follow the same format as the previous ICTP Latin-American string schools held in Cuba (1998), México (2000), Brazil (2003), Argentina (2007) and Brazil (2010). The first week of the school will provide the traditional foundations of string theory and the second week it will continue to more advanced topics. The lectures will assume knowledge of quantum field theory and general relativity at the graduate student level, but will not assume previous familiarity with string theory. There will also be daily discussion sessions and homework exercises. There is no registration fee and limited funds are available for travel and local expenses.
