Mini-Workshop on Primordial Black Holes



Solvay Room, Campus de la Plaine, NO Building, 5th floor.

The goal of this mini-workshop, organized at ULB-Brussels, in the margins of the Solvay Workshop on Fundamental Physics with LISA, is to discuss recent developments in the field of primordial black holes.   A few talks are planned with a priority to young post-docs and PhD students, as well as some time for discussion.

The talks will be broadcasted on zoom:
