“Gravity and Lorentz violations” is a workshop focussing on Lorentz symmetry violations and their possible role in gravitation theory. The topics that will be covered range from Lorentz-violating gravitation theories and experimental constraints on Lorentz invariance to Lorentz violations as probes of quantum gravity phenomenology and the role of Lorentz invariance in black hole physics.

The scope of the workshop is to bring together some of the leading experts in this area, hopefully covering all relevant topics, in a setting that will highly encourage interaction and discussion. To this end, participation is by invitation only.


This event is sponsored by FQXi and by the Centre for Theoretical Cosmology at DAMTP, University of Cambridge
