Geometric Foundations of Gravity in Tartu, Estonia

Geometric Foundations of Gravity in Tartu

is a conference dedicated to the geometric foundations of gravity theories that will take place August 28 – September 1, 2017 in Tartu, Estonia. The aim of this conference is to gather experts on various alternative and modified approaches to gravity, as well as observations.

The main topics include:

* Gauge theories of gravity (Poincare, teleparallel, …)
* Extended field content and related theories ((multi)scalar-vector-tensor theories, Horndeski, f(R) gravity, generalized Proca, massive gravity and bimetric theories)
* Beyond Lorentzian geometry (Finsler geometry, modified dispersion relations)
* Observational evidence for GR and beyond

The conference is organized by the Laboratory of Theoretical Physics, University of Tartu, Estonia.

Invited Speaker are:

-Salvatore Capozziello (Napoli, Italy)
-Lavinia Heisenberg (Zurich, Switzerland)
-Friedrich W. Hehl (Cologne, Germany)
-Tomi S. Koivisto (Stockholm, Sweden)
-Yuri N. Obukhov (Moscow, Russia)
-Sergei D. Odintsov (Barcelona, Spain)
-Claus Laemmerzahl (Bremen, Germany)
-Jose G. Pereira (Sao Paulo, Brazil)
-Frederic Schuller (Erlangen, Germany)

Registration will open in the middle of March 2017 on the homepage

where all details on the meeting are available.

We are looking forward to meet you in Tartu in August, the organizing committee:
