The week of August 21st-25th, 2023, the Niels Bohr International Academy (NBIA) will host its annual workshop on current themes in high energy physics, gravity and cosmology.

In the spirit of Bohr's annual theoretical physics meetings, there will be no concrete theme. The idea is to provide a stimulating environment with few talks per day, but plenty of time for informal discussions. A broad range of topics will be addressed this year, including gravitational wave observations, black hole physics, the Hubble tension and early Universe dynamics. 

The list of invited speakers include:

Zvi Bern (UCLA)
Manuela Campanelli (RIT)
Katerina Chatziioannou (Caltech)
Thibault Damour (IHES)
Paolo Di Vecchia (NBI/NORDITA)
Will Farr (CCA, Flatiron Institute)
Wendy Freedman (U. of Chicago)
David Gross (KITP)
Rocky Kolb (U. of Chicago)
Ashoke Sen (ICTS)
Paul Steinhardt (Princeton)
Neil Turok (U. of Edinburgh)
Alberto Vecchio (U. of Birmingham)
Bob Wald (U. of Chicago)
George Wong (IAS, Princeton)
