Title: Joint BHICMSA Conference on Flat Holography
Venue: Virtual

On June 21–24, 2022, the Harvard Black Hole Initiative and the CMSA hosted the Joint BHI/CMSA Conference on Flat Holography (and related topics). The recent discovery of infinitely-many soft symmetries for all quantum theories of gravity in asymptotically flat space has provided a promising starting point for a bottom-up construction of a holographic dual for the real world. Recent developments have brought together previously disparate studies of soft theorems, asymptotic symmetries, twistor theory, asymptotically flat black holes and their microscopic duals, self-dual gravity, and celestial scattering amplitudes, and link directly to AdS/CFT. The conference was held in room G10 of the CMSA, 20 Garden Street, Cambridge, MA. Organizers: Daniel Kapec, CMSA Andrew Strominger, BHI Shing-Tung Yau, Harvard &…
