Model Building Constraints for type IIB Orientifolds

In this talk, I discuss constraints for string theory constructions in the context of type IIB orientifold compactifications. In particular, in the first part of the talk I will focus on the tadpole cancellation conditions, the generalised Green-Schwarz mechanism and the computation of Fayet-Iliopoulos terms in the case of an orientifold projection leading to anti-invariant two- and four- cycles. In the second part of the talk, I discuss the general question of implementing an MSSM sector realised by D-branes into moduli stabilisation scenarios.
