The workshop focuses on recent developments
in the theory of fundamental
particles, the physics of the early universe, and mathematical physics.
There will be a 90-minute introductory pedagogical lecture each morning
followed by shorter talks by the participants.
The topics and speakers of the pedagogical lectures are:
M. Reuter (Mainz): Recent developments in asymptotically safe quantum gravity
A. Ringwald (Hamburg): Looking beyond the standard model with extremely energetic cosmic particles.
S. Vandoren (Utrecht): Non-perturbative effects in string theory and supergravity
C. Wetterich (Heidelberg): Quintessence - a fifth force from variation of the fundamental scale
