Navigating the Web of Swampland Conjectures
The Swampland program aims to determine the constraints that an effective field theory must satisfy to be consistent with a UV embedding in a quantum gravity theory. Different proposals have been formulated in the form of Swampland conjectures, motivated by black hole arguments and string theory examples. In this talk I will review the most important Swampland conjectures and recent developments regarding their connections and the evidence supporting them.
