 This interdisciplinary workshop gathers specialists from theoretical and experimental condensed matter physics, quantum optics, quantum information, and from theoretical cosmology, gravitation and astrophysics. It is the 4th edition of a series of key events that have fostered the transition of analog models from being a scientific curiosity towards being a useful quantum simulation tool to experimentally explore new physics. Our specific goal is to stimulate interdisciplinary studies of condensed matter analog models of gravity as a concrete experimental tool to attack outstanding problems that arise in the context of gravitation, cosmology and astrophysics. The present challenge is to keep extending the range of configurations that can be simulated, and to identify the most important questions to be addressed. As a key novelty of our event, ample space will be devoted to the use of analog models to attack those quantum information issues that arise from black hole theory.


A special event in memory of Renaud Parentani (1962-2020) will take place on Wed.21st.

In collaboration with SIGRAV, we are foreseeing a “Parentani medal” prize to be offered to the best contribution by a young participant.
