The combination of quantum and gravitational physics led decades ago to the prediction of quantum radiation by black holes and the production of quantum particles in expanding universes. In recent years there has been a resurgence of interest, arising from both a theoretical and an experimental perspective. On the theoretical side, there are significant new findings regarding quantum effects in the inside of black holes or the interconnections between quantum entanglement, gravity, and holography. On the experimental side, there have been advances on observational signatures of quantum effects in gravitational fields, motivated partly by impressive advances in technology.
During August 28-September 1, 2023, we will hold an in-person conference at Leipzig University, Germany, to present and discuss recent developments in the field. Confirmed plenary speakers are:
Eanna E. Flanagan (Cornell, U.S.A.)
Stefan Floerchinger (Heidelberg and Jena, Germany)
Christian Gerard (Orsay, France)
Veronika E. Hubeny (UC Davis, U.S.A.)
Harvey S. Reall (Cambridge, U.K.)
Jeff Steinhauer (Technion, Israel)
Robert M. Wald (Chicago, U.S.A.)
Elizabeth Winstanley (Sheffield, U.K.)
Noa Zilberman (Technion, Israel)
We also welcome contributed talks from scientists working on this area. The deadline for talk submission is July 1, 2023, and for conference registration is July 15, 2023.
