TITLE: An introduction to some aspects of the swampland distance conjectures

ABSTRACT: The swampland program aims at distinguishing the quantum field theories which can be consistently coupled to quantum gravity at high energies from those which cannot. It leads to the formulation of many interesting problems at the intersection of geometry and physics. The first part of this talk will be an introduction to the distance conjectures, concerning the moduli spaces of vacua of the theories which admit a consistent quantum gravity completion. In the second part I will present ongoing work on twisted connected sum G2-manifolds related to the distance conjectures.
