Current challenges in gravitational physics WORKSHOP

 

This workshop aims to connect different communities and research areas in gravitational physics by covering observational and theoretical topics.

More specifically, the focus will be on tests of gravity, gravitational waves, numerical simulations and data analysis, and theoretical models (including modified gravity).
Each of the six days provides a series of invited talks by leading experts along with generous time for discussion.

Due to the ongoing pandemic, this workshop will take place online.

The program will run in the European afternoons to maximize participation across time zones.
