Training School: COST CA18108 First Training School “Quantum gravity phenomenology in the multi-messenger approach”

I am co-organizing the following Training School, which will be held in September in Corfu (Greece):

COST CA18108 First Training School Quantum gravity phenomenology in the multi-messenger approach

It’s now 20 years since the first Doubly Special Relativity papers appeared on ArX

This is the first of a series of Training Schools organized by the European COST Action CA18108 – “Quantum Gravity Phenomenology in the Multi-Messenger Approach”(, an initiative funded by the COST Association (, whose goal is to investigate possible signatures predicted by quantum gravity models in the observation of different cosmic messengers, such as gamma rays, neutrinos, cosmic rays and gravitational waves.

The success of this endeavor requires the close collaboration of scientists from very different backgrounds, ranging from experimentalists specialized in data collection and analyses for specific cosmic messengers, to theorists working on different quantum gravity models.

A fundamental ingredient to make such cooperation effective is to share a common language and be familiar with the tools used by the different communities. This is where the role of this school comes in as fundamental: its goal is to start training a generation of young scientists in the interdisciplinary expertise on quantum gravity theories and models and on experimental and theoretical approaches to multi-messenger astroparticle physics.

As such, the different editions of the Training School will offer lectures from experts on different facets of the scientific gear the students will acquire, including data analysis and interpretation for individual sources, the creation and analysis of joint datasets of different cosmic messengers, the interplay between quantum gravity theory modeling and phenomenological predictions.  

The school is aimed at Master and PhD students, as well as early-career postdocs. 

It will be possible to attend in person in Corfu (preferred mode) or to follow the school online. The lectures will be recorded and the lecture notes will later be published so that it will be possible to use them as preliminary material for the remaining Training Schools (two are foreseen), that will build on the present one to more advanced topics.

The school will be followed by the COST CA18108 Second Annual conference. Those interested in participating should register on the Conference website.
