COST CA18108 Third Annual Conference - Napoli (Italy)




Welcome to the Third Annual Conference of COST Action CA18108

"Quantum gravity phenomenology in the multi-messenger approach"


Zoom link: If you will not be present in person in Napoli, it will possible to follow the conference via:

This is the third Annual Conference organized by COST Action CA18108 (, an initiative funded by the COST Association (, aiming to enable researchers from different communities of quantum gravity theorists and phenomenologists and gamma-ray, neutrino, cosmic-ray and gravitational-wave experimentalists to learn about each other's work and cooperate on the goal of developing new strategies for testing candidate quantum gravity theories using multi-messenger high-energy astrophysical observations.  

Attendance to the conference will be preferably in person in Napoli.

The conference is preceded by a two-day workshop on future challenges and opportunities in QGMM, aimed at a limited number of participants. Registration to the workshop is done separately on the workshop webpage.


May 30: Early Registration deadline

June 6: Confirmation of financial support

June 19: Late Registration deadline (financial support might not be available at this point, depending on the number of early registrants)

June 19: Deadline for abstract submission

June 30: Confirmation of talk selection

July 12: Arrival day

July 14: Conference Dinner

July 16: Departure day

Financial support:

Participation for COST Action participants from COST Member Countries and Near Neighbour countries can be funded by COST. A first round of COST invitations will be sent in early June.
