The intriguing zero speed of light limit of the Poincaré group, discovered in 1965 by Jean-Marc Lévy-Leblond, has recently attracted a lot of attention. This arises as a ripe consequence of research in directions such as fluid/gravity correspondence, flat holography, the study of BMS symmetries in gravity at null infinity, and the general study of null hypersurfaces such as black hole horizons.
The scientific community interested in the consequences and implications of Carroll symmetries in gravity and other physical systems is growing and already two CARROLL WORKSHOPs have been organized. The first CARROLL WORKSHOP was held in Vienna (Technische Universität Wien) in February 2022. A second edition took place in Mons (Université de Mons) in September 2022. Anyone engaged in the fascinating research effort is most welcome to join us to have a look through the Carrollian looking-glass and see what we can find there!
The main purpose of the CARROLL WORKSHOPs is to gather people who are currently involved into this research endeavor around the world, and share common interests in Carrollian physics as well in all closely related matters. We are looking forward to welcome you all in Thessaloniki for the third edition of the CARROLL WORKSHOP from 2nd to 6th October 2023.
