Gravitational wave observations of binary mergers are carrying a new revolution in astrophysics. While signals detected by ground based detectors have already shed light on the most violent among astrophysical events, next generation of interferometers like LISA will allow to witness the evolution of new families of sources, as asymmetric binaries, which harbour a unique potential for the identification of new fundamental fields and particles.

The workshop “Asymmetric Binaries Meet Fundamental Astro-Physics” builds around 5 topics connected to these compact sources: self-force methods, beyond GR modelling, Exotic Compact Objects, environmental effects, astrophysics and data analysis approaches.

The goal of the meeting is to discuss the most recent advances in these topics and their relevance to probe astrophysical and fundamental physics scenarios. We aim to foster multi-disciplinarity among the various themes.

The workshop will be held at the Gran Sasso Science Institute in L’Aquila, from September 20-22, 2023.

L’Aquila lives in a beautiful environment surrounded by the highest peaks of the Apennine Mountains of Italy. The city is home to art, history, and great food.
