Thanks for the alert. From the webpage there seems to be one contributed talk on the subject:String Pheno 2018 opens in Poland today...

Timm Wrase:

*"de Sitter extrema and the swampland"*

Abstract

*: Following the recent claim in 1806.08362 that dS extrema are in the swampland, I will review and scrutinize existing constructions of type II flux compactifications that use only classical ingredients. I will review some no-go results against dS extrema but also show that explicit constructions of (unstable) dS extrema exist that are inconsistent with the conjecture in 1806.08362. I will scrutinize all potential assumptions that go into these existing constructions.*

(Interesting how the attribution goes, now the claim is attributed to Ooguri-Vafa et. al...)

Probably Wrase will be comparing to
