タイトル:Swampland conjectures and gravitational positivity

The goal of the Swampland program is to identify consistency conditions for a gravitational effective theory to have a consistent UV completion and clarify their phenomenological implications toward quantum gravity phenomenology. In the first half of the talk, I will provide an introduction to the Swampland program, especially focusing on the so-called Weak Gravity Conjecture. In the latter half, I will introduce our recent attempts toward its derivation based on consistency of scattering amplitudes.
