New frontiers in strong gravity

Jul 05, 2021

DUE TO THE OBLIGATIONS DERIVED FROM ROYAL DECREE 463/2020, OF MARCH 14th, WHICH DECLARES THE STATE OF ALARM IN SPAIN FOR THE MANAGEMENT OF THE HEALTH CRISIS SITUATION CAUSED BY COVID-19, WE INFORM YOU THAT THE CONFERENCE (schedeuled for July 05-19 2020) HAS BEEN POSTPONED TO 2021 or 2022.TO BE CONFIRMED.

The highly nonlinear, strong-field regime of gravity holds the key to address long-standing puzzles in modern physics. These range from deeply theoretical questions concerning a consistent theory of quantum gravity and resulting modifications to general relativity, over the stability properties of black holes in traditional general relativity, to new insight into nuclear matter under extreme conditions in the context of neutron star and multimessenger astronomy.

With our workshop we will bring together leading experts as well as junior scientists and PhD students in these diverse research areas, to encourage communication and training across the fields and foster new research collaborations.

Invited speakers include:

• Samaya Nissanke • Tessa Baker • Roberto Emparan • Katy Clough • Enrico Barausse • Deirdre Shoemaker • Will East • Aaron Zimmerman • Thomas Sotiriou • Mihalis Dafermos • Maria Okounkova • David Mateos • Anne Davis • Rachel Rosen • Niels Warburton • Laura Bernard • Harald Pfeiffer

The number of participants is limited.

- PhD, postdoc and research fellow should send a CV during the registration process with a list of publications and the name of the supervisor.
