This workshop will bring together experts from different fields of string theory where dualities and geometry play an important role, such as exceptional field theory, exceptional generalised geometry, holography, non-geometric backgrounds, string phenomenology, non-Abelian and Poisson-Lie dualities and integrable deformations. The programme will include introductory overview talks on different aspects of exceptional geometries and their applications, as well as research talks by invited participants and plenty of time for discussion.
