This workshop will focus on applications of strong gravitational lensing to do cosmology, particularly with time-domain observations.  This would include time-delay lensed quasars to determine the Hubble constant, lensed supernovae from future surveys, microlensing to detect dark compact objects, the effects of substructure lensing, and lensed gravitational waves, among other topics.
