Eastern Gravity Meeting (2nd announcement)
EGM13 SECOND ANNOUNCEMENT
The 13th Eastern Gravity Meeting will be hosted by the Department of Physics at North Carolina State University. The meeting will take place in Riddick Hall on the NCSU campus on May 21-22, 2010. Participation is encouraged by researchers, especially students, in all areas of gravitational physics. Since this is a regional meeting, most participants are expected to come from the east coast of North America, but all are welcome.
The meeting will follow the format of previous Eastern Gravity Meetings. All presentations will be the same length, approximately 10-15 minutes. Every effort will be made to accommodate all submissions.
No registration fee will be charged, and no financial support will be provided. All attendees are encouraged to register at http://www.physics.ncsu.edu/EGM13/ . Attendees who would like to present a talk must register for the conference.
A block of rooms has been set aside at the Holiday Inn/Brownstone Hotel. The conference rate is $80/night. The deadline for this special rate is Thursday, April 29, 2010. You should reference “EGM13 Physics Conference” or “PHY” when making your reservation. The Holiday Inn/Brownstone is essentially the only hotel within walking distance of the NCSU campus. It is approximately 1/2 mile from Riddick Hall.
A $200 prize for the best talk by a student will be sponsored by the APS Topical Group on Gravitation (GGR).
