AbstractString theory provides a fruitful landscape of models of particle physics and cosmology incorporating quantum gravity. On the other hand, recent studies have shown that there exit a certain class of consistent-looking effective theories that cannot be embedded into a consistent framework of quantum gravity, which are said to be in the swampland. In this talk, I will review conjectured criteria to distinguish the landscape and swampland, and their phenomenological implications (ex. inflation, dark matter).
