The Modave Summer School on Mathematical Physics is a yearly summer school in topics of theoretical physics ranging from quantum gravity and cosmology to theoretical particle physics and string theory. For this 2020 edition, the school exceptionally takes place in Brussels as opposed to its traditional venue in Modave, a charming village in the Belgian Ardennes close to Huy. The Modave School is organised by PhD students for PhD students, and this makes it rather unique. The courses are taught by Post-Docs or late PhD students, and they are all made of pedagogical, basic blackboard lectures about recent or fundamental topics in theoretical physics. Lectures of the sixteenth edition are centered around the following subjects: the geometry of gauge theories, topics in Lie algebras and quantum information.
