Title: 
Nonassociative gravity in string theory?
Abstract: 

Noncommutativity in string theory first appeared in the open string sector. We briefly review the main computation leading to this result and motivate a generalization to the closed string sector which implies a nonassociative/noncommutative structure. In particular, we present some details on the computation of a three-bracket for the closed string; and we discuss possible interpretations and implications.
