    Black Hole and Gravitational Waves: from modified theories of gravity to data analyses



    Schedule and Venue

    4th Sep. - 8th Sep. 2023 @ APCTP Headquarter  

    Registration Deadline

    31st July  


    We are in the era of observational black hole physics. After the first detection of gravitational waves from a binary black hole coalescence in 2015, many gravitational wave events have been observed. Recently, investigations into the nearby black holes, such as observations of orbiting stars and black hole shadows, are attracting much attention and rapidly developing. One of the most exciting subjects associated with these recent developments is the test of gravitational theory around a black hole. While general relativity is currently consistent with all observational results, it is important to develop theoretical arguments in cooperation with realistic data analyses for the test of gravity through future accurate observation.


    Towards test of gravity theory, discussing gravitational phenomena around black holes and gravitational waves by gathering experts of black hole physics, modified theory of gravity, theoretical study of gravitational waves, and data analyses of gravitational waves.

    Creating new research collaboration through deep discussion.
