FANCY Workshop 2016logoslot2

Field theory Anthropics and Naturalness in CosmologY

When: Tuesday, October 25 to Friday, October 28, 2016
Where: CP3-Origins, SDU, Odense, Denmark

The three fundamental problems in cosmology, the black hole information problem, the quantum origin of our Universe, and the cosmological constant problem, all involves infrared issues in quantum gravity. Assuming that this links together these problems in quantum gravity, this workshop aims at exploring their interconnection. Some of the topics that will be discussed are Holography, Naturalness vs. Anthropics and the Landscape, BMS supertranslations, and hopefully new topics beyond the imagination of the organisers!










The workshop will bring together around 20 invited participants working on fundamental problems related to cosmology.
