The conference aims to bring together experts on physics under intense fields and the extreme universe from a wide range of related areas and discuss fundamental physics, its theoretical predictions, and observational/experimental evidence. The conference will include the following topics (but not limited to):

  • Intense field and universe
  • Extreme universe in a laboratory
  • Black holes, neutron stars, and magnetars
  • Chiral magnetic effects
  • Electroweak vacuum stability
  • Inflation and reheating

The conference is organized by CORE-U (Core Of Research for the Energetic Universe), a newly-established research center which consists of research groups in cosmology, astrophysics, and particle physics in Hiroshima University. The role of CORE-U is in an effort to unify the related research fields and perform comprehensive studies on, e.g., the evolution of the early universe, super-dense astronomical objects, and ultra-high-energy phenomena.
