Travelling through Pedro’s universes: from Spectroscopy to Cosmology, Madrid, Spain

This is an international and multidisciplinary workshop in honour of Prof. Pedro Felix Gonzalez Diaz, who passed away already 6 years ago. It will be held in the Faculty of Physics of the Complutense University of Madrid from the 3rd to the 5th of December 2018.

As Pedro treated so many topics during his career, the workshop will be composed by several short sessions, consisting of one or two overview talks and introduced by experts of the field. The topics will run from spectroscopy to popular science theatre, with a special emphasis in topics related with gravitation and cosmology.
