General Relativity is among the most successful physical theories ever developed. However, fundamental physics suggests that it cannot be the complete story. The goal of this three-day workshop is to bring together scientists working on classical, quantum, and phenomenological aspects of gravity beyond General Relativity.

Topics covered range from quantum gravity, higher-derivative gravity and other extensions of GR, black holes and exotic compact objects, gravitational waves, and cosmology.

The workshop will feature a selection of plenary talks as well as contributed talks, for which preference will be given to postdocs and PhD students. 

Note: registration is now closed since we have reached full capacity.
