6th Gulf Coast Gravity Meeting (2nd announcement)
This is the 2nd announcement of the 6th Gulf Coast Gravity Meeting, which will be held May 15-16 at Florida Atlantic University in Boca Raton, Florida. Researchers in all areas of gravitational physics, including numerical, experimental, classical and quantum gravity, as well as related astrophysics and cosmology will be in attendance. This is an informal regional meeting, and most participants will be from the Gulf Coast area of the United States, but all outside of this region who wish to attend are more than welcome. A prize of $200 (sponsored by the APS Topical Group on Gravity) will be awarded for the best talk given by a student at the meeting. Additionally, funds are available to support student travel through an event grant of the Oak Ridge Associated Universities.
The registration simply consists in sending an email to jonathan.engle[AT]fau.edu with a title and short abstract if it is desired to give a talk, preferably by May 8th. Please indicate in the email whether the participant is a student. A current list of registered participants may be found at the website http://www.physics.fau.edu/events_news/GCGM6/GCGM6.php .
