Emergent gravity is a unique approach which aims to understand the dynamics of gravity using a thermodynamic perspective. This paradigm provides a refreshingly different way of interpreting spacetime dynamics and highlights the fact that several features of classical gravitational theories may have direct thermodynamic interpretation.

In this meeting, we aim to focus on various aspects of this interesting approach and understand the current status. This meeting is organized by Indian Association for General Relativity and Gravitation (IAGRG) in collaboration with the physics departments of IIT Gandhinagar, IIT Madras and IACS Kolkata.

The speakers are

Ted Jacobson
Mark Van Raamsdonk
Stefano Liberati
Erik Verlinde

This meeting is dedicated to the memory of Prof. Thanu Padmanabhan.
