During the week of June 24-28, 2024, the Niels Bohr International Academy (NBIA) will host its annual workshop on Current Themes in Theoretical Physics. The focus of this year’s meeting will be on transient astrophysics and cosmology.

In the spirit of Bohr's annual theoretical physics meetings, we will provide a stimulating environment with few talks per day and plenty of time for informal discussions. 

Registration for the event is open, but speakers are by invitation only. If you register for the workshop, please be aware that there is only a limited number of seats in the room and we may not be able to accept all registrants. Please note that your participation is not confirmed, until you receive a confirmation email from the NBIA Administrative Officer Gosia Dekempe. 

The deadline for registration is May 15th, 2024.
