Date:  2023-03-07  -  2023-06-23

Location:  Online

Physics Without Frontiers has enlisted volunteers Daniel Galviz and Ruben Campos and partnered with the Physics Department at the University of Los Andes to provide online advanced courses in theoretical physics for undergraduate and graduate students in Venezuela and Latin America.

The Third course, Quantum Gravity, will be taught online from 7th March to 23th June 2023 by Ruben Campos Delgado (Bethe Center for Theoretical Physics and Uni Bonn, DE). Physics students from different universities in Latin America will be trained in Quantum gravity, Black Holes and string theory and its applications to cosmology. Every student will receive an ICTP-PWF certificate at the end.

The application procedure is open now (the deadline is on 28th Feb 2023). For more information visit our Website.

Goals and deliverables
Help students in Latin America by teaching lectures on theoretical physics.
Help students to be familiar with advanced research topics in theoretical physics.
Students will solve weekly assignments on these topics.
Top students without MSc./Ph.D. will be mentored to pursue studies abroad, giving advice and recommendations about scholarships at international programs.
