ECT* meeting room

This interdisciplinary workshop gathers specialists from theoretical and experimental condensed matter physics and quantum optics and from theoretical cosmology, gravitation and astrophysics. The short term goal is to collectively explore the possibility of exploiting condensed matter analog models as experimental tools to study problems that arise in the context of gravitation, especially cosmology and astrophysics. First examples of such analog models have recently being realized in a few laboratories around the world. The next challenges will be to extend the range of configurations and observables that can be simulated and to identify key questions to be addressed in future experiments. The long-term goal is to bring analog models from being a scientific curiosity towards being a useful quantum simulation tool to experimentally explore intriguing new physics.
