The combination of quantum and gravitational physics led decades ago to the prediction of quantum radiation by black holes and the production of quantum particles in expanding universes. In recent years there has been a resurgence of interest, arising from both a theoretical and an experimental perspective. On the theoretical side, there are significant new findings regarding quantum effects inside black holes or the interconnections between quantum entanglement, gravity, and holography. On the experimental side, there have been advances on observational signatures of quantum effects in gravitational fields, motivated partly by impressive advances in technology.

This summer we will hold an in-person conference to present and discuss recent developments in the field.

We welcome contributed talks from scientists working on this area. The deadline for talk submission is July 1, 2023. For submitting a talk, please click on "Call for Abstracts" on the left panel (please note that there you will be required to set up an Indico account).

The registration deadline is July 15, 2023.

Beware: We were made aware that there is a scam originating from "ops@travellerpoint.org" and "operations@travelhosting.co.uk" regarding "Accommodation in Leipzig, Germany - 28 August-1 September, 2023 - Leipzig University". They claim to be arranging accommodations for this conference in order to get credit card information and payments. This is NOT legitimate and NOT originating from us indirectly!
