7th Winter Workshop @Valencia

Welcome to the website of the 7th edition of the Winter Workshop on Theoretical Physics. This event will take place at the Lise Meitner auditorium of the Faculty of Physics of the University of Valencia (Spain) on December 11-13, 2023

Direct links to the talks: 

 Yes, we do have a channel!

Meeting ID: 933 4313 5081
Access Code: 19051915

Fundamental questions about the foundations of gravitation, the role of quantized fields in curved space-times, cosmological and astrophysical signatures of gravity within and beyond General Relativity, and recent developments on other topics, will be reviewed in a series of invited/contributed talks, and open discussions. 

This year the workshop will delve around three complementary topics:  

  • Quantum aspects in gravity. 
  • Black holes, compact objects, and gravitational waves. 
  • General Relativity and beyond. 

Each of the 3 sessions of the meeting will feature an invited talk and will be followed by contributions on related topics. 

Invited speakers include:

Jorma Louko (University of Nottingham, UK)

Mariafelicia De Laurentis (INFN - Universitá di Napoli, Italy)

Jose Beltrán-Jiménez (University of Salamanca, Spain)

Silvia Pla Garcia (King's College London, UK)

Adrià Delhom i Latorre (Louisiana State University, USA)

This series of meetings started in Valencia in 2017 as a hybrid event hoping to bring together close collaborators and friends of friends in an informal atmosphere in order to have some time for discussions on current research topics and stimulate new collaborations. As of the last edition in Madrid, and with the COVID-19 under control, the workshop was open to the public in general but keeping its original format and goals, leading to a successful event with over 100 participants. 

In this 7th edition, we would like to maintain the format of the Madrid edition without forgetting that the purpose of the workshop is to encourage everyone, from seniors to less-experienced students and postdocs, to present some results obtained during the last year that they find particularly relevant/interesting/easy to discuss in a relaxed way, including current work in progress, and addressing a few simple questions:
1. What is it about?
2. Why is it important? (An explanation of what is unique and/or timely about this topic and the difference it might make with respect to previous work).
3. Future perspectives.
The contributions are encouraged to be conceptual presentations, with minimal calculations if possible. The subsequent discussion and questions could extend as much as needed, depending on the audience participation. For students we expect talks of about 15-20’, while for postdocs/seniors up to 25-30’, though specific details will be settled once we have a clear picture of the number of participants. The idea is to have talks not too focused on technicalities (if the topic allows) but to have more discussions which could lead to new works/collaborations in 2024 and beyond. 

As usual, physical as well as online presentations will be possible (yes, we'd love to see you here but we also care about CO2 emissions). 

Registration closed on November 15th.
