Gravity and Cosmology 2024

Jan 29, 2024

YITP long-term workshop, January 29–March 1, 2024 at Yukawa Institute for Theoretical Physics, Kyoto University.

On this long-term workshop

In 2007, Yukawa Institute for Theoretical Physics (YITP) started new project "Yukawa International Program of Quark-Hadron Sciences (YIPQS)" funded by Japan Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology. In this project we select research topics for each long-term workshop and invite leading experts to stimulate discussion and to foster collaborations among workshop participants.

This time, we hold "Gravity and Cosmology 2024", as a successor of the four long-term workshops held under the same title in the past (2007, 2010, 2012, and 2018). (The one in 2022 except YKIS2022a was canceled due to the influence of COVID-19.) The aim of the workshop is to have comprehensive but intensive discussion on the rapidly expanding frontiers of physics of gravity and cosmology.

During the workshop, participants stay at YITP with desks and other facilities. They can take ample time for discussions with other participants in a relaxed atmosphere of Kyoto.
