Date:  2020-10-12  -  2020-10-16

Location:  Odense, Denmark (or online)

This is the fifth in a series of workshops on Quantum Spacetime and the Renormalization Group, bringing together researchers exploring a broad range of research avenues in Quantum Gravity, including, but not limited to, Asymptotically Safe Gravity, Causal and Euclidean Dynamical Triangulations, Causal Sets, Group Field Theories, Spin Foam models and Tensor Models. Previous installments took place at the Perimeter Institute in 2014, at Nordita in 2015, at the Lorentz Center in Leiden in 2017 and in Bad Honnef in 2018.

The main goals of the workshop are
– contributing to sharpening the major conceptual and technical open questions of the field and identifying routes to answer these.
– triggering new collaborations, in particular between researchers from neighboring communities, enabling a fruitful exchange of ideas and transfer of knowledge.
– providing in particular young researchers with a comprehensive overview of the most pressing questions in the field and motivating them to tackle these from new angles.
– producing novel ideas how to bridge the gap between a fundamental theory of quantum gravity and observations and triggering new developments towards observational tests of quantum gravity.

Due to COVID-19, it could become necessary to organize the workshop in an online format. The dates October 12-16, 2020, would remain the same in this case.

The organizers are planning to make the decision about the format of the workshop (traditional or online) by the end of July, to allow sufficient time for travel arrangements in case the workshop can go ahead as originally planned.

Application for participation is now possible following the link on the webpage of the workshop.

All applicants for participation will be informed about the outcome of their application by the end of July. Please do not under any circumstances make any travel arrangements before you have received official confirmation of your successful registration and of the format of the workshop.
