Black hole physics from strongly coupled thermal dynamics: May 12 – June 13, 2025

Organized by:

  • Sera Cremonini ( Lehigh University)

  • Pavel Kovtun (University of Victoria)
  • Hong Liu (MIT)
  • Andrei Parnachev (Trinity College Dublin)

There have been exciting recent advancements in various aspects of holography, black hole physics, and thermal quantum matter. This progress underscores the need for a platform where researchers from these fields can come together to exchange their latest developments, share new insights, and collaborate. The program will cover a range of topics, including probes of black hole singularities, characterizations of quasinormal modes, bootstrap methods for thermal correlators, constraints on transport coefficients and their implications, and effective field theories for hydrodynamics.

This program will also be hosting a workshop: Black holes and strongly coupled thermal dynamics: June 2-6, 2025
