The strong-gravity community is living a new Golden Age. In these exciting times, current and future observations will push the boundaries of our knowledge and will challenge current paradigms. To discuss new and urgent challenges, we are organizing the “Strong Gravity Beyond” workshop in the island of Sardinia (Italy) in June 2021.

This will be a cozy event in a beach resort in the area around Cagliari, the main city of the island, with a selected number of speakers. The workshop will be organized around 3 thematic days:

* Beyond General Relativity: modified theories of gravity, tests of GR, waveform modelling
* Beyond Standard Model: compact objects as particle detectors, ultralight fields, superradiance
* Beyond Black Holes: exotic compact objects, tests of horizons, modelling

On each day there will be 3 talks and a round table, leaving plenty of time for informal discussion and work surrounded by the stunning Sardinian beaches and wildlife.
