Gravity at UdeC/UTA 2022
Black Holes, Holography and Beyond

November 2nd - 8th, 2022


Universidad de Tarapacá and Universidad de Concepción are pleased to announce their first joint international conference, destined to the study of black hole physics and holography. This time, the conference will be held at Auditorio Alamiro Robledo, Facultad de Ciencias Físicas y Matemáticas, Universidad de Concepción. The meeting aims to bring together local and international researchers working in Chile and abroad as well as M.Sc. and Ph.D. students and you postdoc fellows. The activity will be also complemented by a School intended to provide the students with advanced tools in algebraic classification of spacetimes and their universality, with an introduction to microstate counting in AdS/CFT holography and to Black Hole Chemistry. Students and postdoctoral fellows are specially encouraged to register, sending an email to (registration is now closed).
