Condensed matter meets gravity
For a long time there has been cross fertilization of theoretical developments from high energy physics to condensed matter theory and vice versa. This is evidenced in the Higgs mechanism, renormalization group ideas, spontaneous broken symmetry amongst others.
In particular "fundamental"
theoretical structures arise in condensed matter
The present workshop will, for the first time, assemble main practitioners and developers of these ideas of emergent gravity with main practitioners of high energy physics and of different approaches to quantum gravity. The workshop will provide for the useful exchange of ideas and cross pollination between the different fields that can serve as a seed and driver of innovation in novel approaches to quantum gravity.
