On a safe road to quantum gravity with matter

Hvar Island, Croatia, September 11-14 2018

On a safe road to quantum gravity with matter

The workshop aims at discussing the subject of asymptotic safety from both perturbative and non-perturbative perspectives, including modern developments in gravity and ordinary gauge theories.

On the gravity side, status of the asymptotic safety paradigm for quantum gravity with matter will be discussed within the framework of functional renormalization group approach.

On the gauge theory side, the status of large-NF expansion in the gauge-Yukawa theories will be reviewed and possibility for simulating these theories on the lattice will be discussed. Moreover, different aspects of asymptotically safe extensions of the Standard Model will be presented.


  1. Asymptotic safety in gravity and non perturbative renormalization group
  2. Gauge-Yukawa theories in large-NF expansion
  3. Asymptotically safe extensions of the Standard Model
  4. Asymptotic safety on the lattice
