22nd Midwest Relativity Meeting / Compact Objects Meeting

The 22nd Midwest Relativity Meeting will be held Friday and Saturday, October 25 and 26, 2013 at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee and will be followed by a Compact Objects meeting on Sunday October 27. Astrophysical talks on compact objects in the Relativity Meeting will be scheduled for Saturday to give a natural overlap. Each participant in the meetings may present a talk of approximately 10-15 minutes, depending on the total number of talks, We intend the Midwest Relativity Meeting to cover a broad range of topics in gravitation physics, including classical and quantum gravity, numerical relativity, relativistic astrophysics, cosmology, gravitational waves and experimental gravity. The third day of science talks will focus on a wider range of topics relating to the astrophysics of compact objects: white dwarfs, neutron stars, and black holes; we encourage submissions of observational and theoretical talks by students, postdocs, and faculty.

As this is a regional meeting, many of the participants will be from the United States Midwest and Canada, but researchers and students from other areas are also welcome. A conference website will be open by early September, at which time further details, registration information and abstract submission will be available at

There is no conference fee.
