Black Holes Inside and Out, August 26-30 2024, Copenhagen

Aug 26, 2024

The gravitational physics landscape has been evolving rapidly, driven in good part by our ability to study strong-field regions, in particular black holes. Black holes are the most amazing macroscopic objects in the universe. According to Einstein’s General Relativity, their exterior is extremely simple, while their interior holds the failure of the underlying theory. There are thus strong reasons to tests black hole spacetimes, an endeavor made possible by gravitational-wave astronomy. Black hole physics is an active field of research, which witnessed a number of important results in the last few years.

Black Holes Inside and Out will gather some of the world experts in black hole physics, numerical relativity, black hole perturbation theory, data analysis and astronomy to discuss the status of the field and prospects ahead. The meeting will take place at the Niels Bohr Institute from August 26 to August 30, 2024.

The Niels Bohr Institute carries an important legacy in physics and is one of the leading institute in theoretical and experimental physics. Copenhagen is a very enjoyable and beautiful city, and as the capital of Denmark has plenty of wonderful things to do and is easy to reach. and we would be thrilled to organize a small historical tour of the institute. The entire Nordic region has plenty to offer and is a remarkable place for summer vacations.
