Advanced school on quantum spacetime – University of Warsaw, 2024


Advanced school on quantum spacetime will take place at the Faculty of Physics, University of Warsaw, from September 2 to September 6, 2024. The school will cover some of the most rapidly developing areas connecting quantum field theory with cosmology and gravitational physics: black holes, scattering amplitudes, gravitational waves, cosmological correlators, and celestial holography. The school will consist of five series of lectures, each series will consist of four lectures. The school is intended for graduate students, but advanced undergraduates and postdocs entering these research areas will also profit from pedagogical lectures and discussions.

The lectures will take place in lecture hall 0.06, in the ground floor of the Faculty of Physics.


Warsaw Chopin Airport – the main airport serving Warsaw. It is located within the city limits, 10 km from the city center, which you can easily reach by a few city buses, a train line, and a taxi.


Warsaw Modlin Airport – another airport, mainly serving budget airlines, located 35 km from the city . It takes around 50 minutes to get to the city center, either by bus and train or a taxi.


Warszawa Centralna Railway Station – the main railway station located in the city center, also serving international trains.


Public transport in Warsaw – the city has a vast transportation network, which includes buses, metro, and trams. You can buy tickets for a single trip (up to either 20 or 75 minutes, with transfers allowed), or multi-day tickets.


Warsaw Public Bike – one of the largest urban bike systems in Europe. It is a good complement to public transport in Warsaw and allows quick navigation through our city. You can register and use at little or (for short enough rides) no cost.

Here are some (relatively) nearby hotels in which participants might choose to stay. For more options you can check Google maps, booking.com, etc.
