LGRT 1033

This workshop will highlight recent progress in understanding the landscape of quantum gravities, as well as defining the important open questions and developing connections with different areas of particle theory. The themes of the program will mimic the various approaches used to tackle this problem from top-down to bottom-up constructions as well as relating constraints from cosmology, holography and generalized symmetry structures.

Co-organizers:

Ben Heidenreich (UMass Amherst)

Matteo Lotito (Seoul National University)

Naomi Gendler (Cornell University)

Matthew Reece (Harvard University)

John Stout (Harvard University)
