This workshop will be on Dec 11-13, 2023 at the beautiful location of the Botanical Garden of Sapienza University of Rome, located in Trastevere. It will bring together experts on early universe cosmology, primordial black hole formation and evolution, and gravitational-wave science to discuss how the PBH scenario confronts with current and future data.
The program will include ample time for discussions and few slots for contibuted talks. The dealine for abstract submission is Oct 31st.
There is not registration fee. The venue can accomodate abliut 100 people, therefore we encourage to register in advance: the first screening of participants will be done at the end of September. According to the availability of places registrations will be accepted up to Dec 1st.
On Tuesday 12 December we will have a conference dinner (approx 40€ to be paid on site).

Status and future of primordial black hole science
