The Iberian Strings 2013 meeting is the fourth meeting of the Iberian Strings series, superseding previous editions of the Workshop on Gravitational Aspects of Strings and Branes and of Northwest Strings. These meetings bring together a large part of the string theory community of Spain and Portugal and aim at discussing recent advances in the field of strings and branes. String theorists working elsewhere are also welcome to participate at the meeting.

Iberian Strings 2013 will be held at Instituto Superior Técnico (Lisbon/Portugal) from January 22 till January 25, 2013.  

The previous meeting took place in Bilbao.
