Strong Gravity at CENTRA

Oct. 28/10:00 - Oct. 29/17:00 2019

CENTRA is organizing a two-day, informal workshop at Instituto Superior Técnico (IST), to discuss open issues and recent developments in strong field, dynamical gravity. The event will be a get together of GRIT/CENTRA members and members from the Oxford group and other groups.

The meeting takes place in the seminar room of the Physics Department, 2nd floor of the building.

The program is as follows:
