Building upon the success of the inaugural Lemaître workshop
we delve deeper into the legacy of Mgr. Georges Lemaître's profound insights.
This iteration focuses on addressing paramount themes: Cosmology and the perplexing Hubble tension, the enigmatic nature of spacetime singularities encompassing the Big Bang and Black Holes, the Gravitational Waves they produce, the tantalizing pursuit of Quantum Gravity and its connections with the Entanglement and foundations of Quantum Theory.
The main goal of this workshop is to encourage interaction among the participants, between theory and observation, and to provide a stimulating and thought-provoking environment for new ideas.
