Dark Energy and Modified gravity
Alternative theories of gravity can allow for self-accelerating cosmologies without the need for a cosmological constant. This makes them compelling alternatives to LCDM and there is an intense effort aimed at exploring viable cosmological models and testing gravity on a variety of different scales.

The aim of this session is to bring together researchers working in different fields who may be thinking about testing gravity. We hope to stimulate lively discussion and hope that new and novel probes may emerge from this interaction.

We welcome contributions from people working on fields such as

- Theoretical modelling

- Simulations

- Laboratory experiments

- Astrophysical tests (lensing, clusters, kinematics, stellar etc.)

- Strong field tests (Black holes, neutron stars, gravitational waves etc.)

Contributions aimed at bridging theory and observation are particularly welcome.
