TITLE: On SCFTs at canonical singularities

ABSTRACT: Canonical threefold singularities are used in string theory to ‘geometrically engineer’ superconformal field theories (SCFTs) in 4d and 5d. I will discuss various aspects of that intriguing relationship between physics and geometry, providing an overview of recent results, conjectures and open questions.
