Title: Swampland program, extra dimensions and supersymmetry breaking
Abstract: I will argue on the possibility that the smallness of some physical parameters signal a universe corresponding to a large distance corner in the string landscape of vacua. Such parameters can be the scales of dark energy and supersymmetry breaking, leading to a generalisation of the dark dimension proposal. I will discuss the theoretical framework and some of its main physical implications to particle physics and cosmology.
