on Living on the Wall: The Case for Six Dimensions

I will discuss some of the motivations for considering six dimensional chiral and matter coupled gauged supergraties in the context of co-dimension two braneworld scenarios. I will then devote most of the talk on the description of the progress made so far on the embedding of such models in string/M-theory.
