Loops’17, Warsaw, Poland (2nd announcement)

The Loops’17 conference will highlight recent developments and new research directions in loop quantum gravity and other background independent approaches to the problem of quantum gravity.
– Deadline for early registration: May 15th, 2017
– Deadline for late registration: June 15th, 2017
– Deadline for submission of talks (extended): June 1st, 2017
