The 1st The 1st Pacific Summer School: Theory and Observations in Einstein’s Theory of Gravity and its Modifications, will take place from January 17th to January 23rd in Santiago, Chile. This school will be held at Vicente Kovacevic II building, Facultad de Ingenieria y Arquitectura, Universidad Central de Chile.
This inaugural edition marks the beginning of a series of schools to be held in the South Pacific region, which aims to convene local and foreign M.Sc. and Ph.D. students, postdoc researchers, and leading experts in gravitation. The primary focus is to discuss the remarkable recent developments in both theory and observations in cosmology, gravitational waves, black holes, and other compact objects within the context of general relativity and modified theories of gravity. Participants, especially students, will have the opportunity to learn advanced solution-generating techniques for general relativity, as well as an introduction to scalar-tensor theories and their applications. This event will be a suitable opportunity to assess new areas of contact and facilitate ongoing collaborations while promoting new research partnerships.
