50 Years of Horndeski Gravity: Exploring Modified Gravity

We are excited to announce a landmark conference that plans to delve into the forefront of research on modified theories of gravity and brings together leading experts from different disciplines including observational astrophysicists, numerical relativists, cosmologists and mathematical physicists to explore the present status of modified theories of gravity and envision their future theoretical development and implications for observations.

This conference is also timed to coincide with the 50th anniversary of pioneering work in this area carried out by Gregory Horndeski in the Waterloo Mathematical Physics Community. Hosted jointly by the University of Waterloo and the Perimeter Institute, this conference will serve as a forum for researchers from different disciplines to exchange ideas at the cuttingĀ edge of gravitational physics.
