Dear Colleagues,

We invite you to take part in the conference “Alternative Gravities and Fundamental Cosmology” which will take place in Szczecin, Poland from 14th to 18th of September 2020. This is the fifth of a series of conferences on fundamental cosmology organized by the Szczecin Cosmology Group, University of Szczecin (after Cosmofun'2005, Grasscosmofun'09, Multicosmofun'12, Varcosmofun'16).

The task of the conference is to bring together specialists dealing with the problems of alternative gravities (including quantum gravity, superstring, varying constants, Lorentz violating etc.) both from theoretical and observational point of view. The program of the conference will contain 4 plenary morning sessions and 3 afternoon parallel sessions (of 3 sessions each), 1 morning doctoral students' session (up to 3 parallel sessions). The last afternoon of the conference will be devoted to philosophical aspects of cosmology. There will also be a poster session if the number of abstracts is above our talk time capabilities. The oral presentations will be selected by the sessions conveners in collaboration with the Scientific Committee. We plan to publish conference proceedings in the journal “Universe”.

Invited speakers:

Niayesh Ashfordi, Univ. Waterloo, Canada
John D. Barrow, Univ. Cambridge, UK
Eleonora Di Valentino, Jodrell Bank, USA
Astrid Eichhorn, Univ. Odense, Denmark
Ivette Fuentes, Univ. Nottingham, UK
Enrique Gaztañaga, ICE, CSIC Barcelona, Spain
Lavinia Heisenberg, ETH Zurich, Switzerland
Michael Heller, Vatican Astronomical Observatory
Martin Kunz, Univ. Geneva, Switzerland
David Mota, Univ. Oslo, Norway
Fabio Scardigli, Univ. Leiden, Netherlands
Alexei Starobinsky, Landau Institute, Moscow, Russia
John Webb, Univ. New South Wales, Australia

Topics of parallel sessions: I. Alternative gravities and dark energy (ALT-DE); II. Alternative gravities and dark matter (ALT-DM); III. Alternative gravities for gravitational waves/black holes (ALT-GW/BH); IV. Quantum gravity as alternative gravity (ALT-QG); V. Alternative gravity phenomenology (GUP, Lorentz Violation, Varying Constants); VI. Alternative gravity and fundamental theories (strings, branes).

Looking forward to seeing you in Szczecin.

With compliments,

Mariusz P. Dabrowski (Organizing Committee chair)
