10th Tux Work­shop on Quan­tum Gra­vi­ty

The 10th Tux winter workshop on quantum gravity took place February 13-17, 2023 in Tux (Austria).

We have been aware of the fact that the pandemic is not over yet and that some of you, for whatever reason, might have difficulties to travel. Therefore, we set up again a hybrid workshop as we did last February. In order to keep the meeting rather informal, however, remote access required previous registration.

Please apply for participation in the workshop by e-mail to the conference address

tuxworkshop . . . . . . . . fuw.edu.pl (spaced dots to be replaced by "@")

as soon as possible, and before Friday, December 16, 2022. Please let us know whether you plan to be on-site in Tux or on-line only. If you will come to Tux, please also indicate your dates of arrival and departure.

Please send title and abstract of your proposed talk to the same address. The deadline for talk submission was Thursday, January 12, 2023, although earlier submission is strongly encouraged.

Please let us know if your name, affiliation and talk details shall not be published at the website.


The schedule is now available.

Further Information

The aim is to bring together experts on loop quantum gravity and related topics. In general, the topics of the workshop include  

  • All approaches to loop quantum gravity (e.g. canonical, covariant, GFT)
  • Other approaches to quantum gravity and their relation to LQG
  • LQG related quantum gravity phenomenology
  • Quantum gravity topics of general interest
  • GR and differential geometry topics of general interest

For the upcoming workshop, we particularly invite contributions on

  • Quantum black holes
  • Fundamental structures of LQG

First and foremost, we would like to invite you to take part in the meeting and to submit a talk.

At present, we are not aware of any Covid restrictions in Austria, except for (1) some mask mandates and (2) the requirement, when travelling from People's Republic of China, to present a negative PCR test. Also, we do not expect that the level of restrictions will reach again that of previous years, unless there will pop up particular virus variants.

Nevertheless, anticipating rising infection figures in the first months of 2023, there might reappear minor restrictions like an extension of mask mandates, e.g.,
to public transport or indoor meetings. Independently of any legal requirements, we strongly recommend to wear a mask during indoor events.

Please note that all the information we have provided here, is informal and not legally binding. Also we will not be able to communicate any future changes in the
rules. However, if we do become aware of some relevant changes, we will let you know.

This year's conference is supported by Regensburg University. Therefore, there will again be no conference fee.

At the same time, however, we do not expect to have any financial support available directly for participants.

The nearest train station for long-distance trains is Jenbach; from Jenbach there is a light train to Mayrhofen and then a bus to Tux.

The nearest airports are Munich and Innsbruck. There has also been an affordable shuttle service from Munich airport.

There is a tourist service that can find accommodation according to your specifications and help with the booking. You can also book online on the their website, but it may also be helpful to call them, as not all places are bookable online. They speak English:
