This edition of the Italian Society of General Relativity and Gravitation (SIGRAV) International School aims to provide robust and broad knowledge of different quantum aspects of gravitational theory and their implications for black hole physics and cosmology as well as their possible observational/experimental tests. The School organizes the following lectures:

Pillar courses:

Quantum Gravity applied to Black Holes:

  • Black hole in String Theory

          Lecturer: Jan De Boer (University of Amsterdam, Amsterdam, The Netherlands)

  • Quantum gravitational aspects of black holes

          Lecturer: Daniele Pranzetti (Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics, Ontario, Canada)

Quantum Gravity applied to Cosmology:

  • String Cosmology

          Lecturer: Robert Brandenberger (McGill University, Montréal, Canada)

  • Quantum Cosmology

          Lecturer: Slava Mukhanov (Ludwig Maximilians Universität (LMU), München, Germany)

Monographic courses:

  • Foundational Issues in Quantum Gravity

          Lecturer: Daniele Oriti (Arnold Sommerfeld Center for Theoretical Physics, München, Germany)

  • Gravitational physics of Quantum Objects

          Lecturer: Flaminia Giacomini (Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics, Ontario, Canada)

  • Analogue/Emergent Gravity

          Lecturer: Silke Weinfurtner (The University of Nottingham, United Kindom)

  • Quantum Gravity Phenomenology

           Lecturer: Astrid Eichhorn (University of Southern Denmark, Odense, Denmark)

  • Introduction to AdS/CFT correspondence
