This workshop gathers specialists from theoretical and experimental condensed matter and atomic physics as well as nuclear and gravitational physics to discuss in an interdisciplinary way the concept of Bose-Einstein condensation and its realizations in different areas of the physical sciences. It is the 2024 edition (coinciding with the centenary of the pioneering first work by Satyendra Bose) of a series of key events that started in Levico (near Trento) back in 1993 and were instrumental to the impressive developments that research on BECs displayed in the last three decades. As compared to other events focussing on specific systems, the distinctive feature of our workshop will be its commitment to have a broad spectrum of participants and topics, with the goal of fostering and nurturing existing interdisciplinary connections and facilitating new, unexpected ones. In particular, themes will include condensation in gases of ultracold atoms, quasi-particles (magnons, excitons, polaritons) in solids, light; emergence of universality and criticality in the non-equilibrium statistical mechanics of condensates; condensates in gravitation and cosmology. The structure of the workshop will be designed with a specific attention to stimulate unexpected long-range connections between distinct fields.
