Europe/London timezone

The workshop aims at bringing together early career researchers and
senior scientists to discuss results, perspectives, and novel trends in
quantum field theory and quantum gravity.

The format of the meeting is informal to allow for discussions and the
exchange of ideas amongst participants. Depending on demand, we
plan for up to 9 slots for short presentations.

Previous installments of this meeting took place at Kings College (2012),
U Sussex (2013) ("Advances in Quantum Field Theory and Gravity") and U Southampton (2014) ("Non-perturbative quantum field theory and quantum gravity").
