In recent years, the field of alternative theories of gravity has been very active. The plethora of proposed modified theories, the challenge in conceiving new experiments, and the corresponding difficulty of probing unexplored regimes where new physics might be revealed, call for a joint effort within the community.

We believe this is the ideal timing for organizing a workshop on these topics in Europe. The aim is to bring together leading experts in the area in a highly interactive workshop, with thorough presentations and plenty of time for discussion. Participation is limited to invited speakers only.

The workshop “Strong Gravity beyond GR: from theory to observations” will be held at Instituto Superior Técnico (IST) in Lisbon, from 5-8 March 2013.
