Workshop on Frontiers in Gravitation, Astrophysics, and Cosmology (ICNFP 2018)


The purpose of this workshop is to discuss and share new developments, experimental and theoretical, in Gravitation, Astrophysics, and Cosmology.
It is part of the International Conference on New Frontiers in Physics, which aims to promote scientific exchange and development of novel ideas in science with a particular accent in interdisciplinarity. The conference will bring together worldwide experts and promising young scientists working on experimental and theoretical aspects of particle, nuclear, heavy ion and astro-particle physics and cosmology, with colleagues from other disciplines, for example solid state physics, mathematics, mathematical physics, quantum optics and other.

The conference will be hosted in the Conference Center of the Orthodox Academy of Creta (OAC), an exceptionally beautiful location only a few meters from the mediteranean sea.

From 21 to 28 July, Mézeyrac (Auvergne, France)

Young physicists, mathematicians and philosophers shall meet for a crazy one-week expedition lost between earth and sky at the boundary of the thinkable world. The goal of this summer-school is to share deep discussions about physics and its foundations in an open and creative way for an intense time of learning, reflection and enlightenment – and all in a joyful atmosphere. With up to 17 commensals, this year’s instalment of l’agape will see a partition between more in-depth courses given in the mornings and radical, open and creative activities in the afternoons.

Friday 27 July 14:00-15:00, Amphi 5 du CPT
