This year we have, among the invited speakers, two Nobel laureates in physics: Roger Penrose (2020 Nobel Prize in Physics on black hole formation) and Kip Thorne (2017 Nobel Prize in Physics for the observation of gravitational waves). In conjunction with the workshop there will be the first John Archibald Wheeler Prize. This year the prize is on gravitational physics.
Some of the topics that will be discussed during the workshop will be:
