The 29th Pacific Coast Gravity Meeting will be held at the University of California at Davis on March 29-30, 2013. The conference will cover all aspects of classical and quantum gravity, both theory and experiment. In keeping with tradition, the style will be very open and informal, with the aim of fostering communication among gravitational physicists with varied backgrounds. Students and postdocs are especially encouraged to give short, introductory talks about their research. As a regional meeting, the PCGM normally draws most of its participants from western North America, but all are welcome.
There will no registration fee, and no financial support for travel. A prize, sponsored by the APS Topical Group on Gravity, will be awarded for the best talk given by a student at the meeting.
Davis is located in California’s Central Valley, about 15 miles west of Sacramento. The nearest airport is Sacramento International; a variety of shuttle services are available between the airport and Davis. We will reserve a block of nearby hotel rooms for participants.
A second announcement, with website containing more information on registration, travel, and lodging, will appear in mid-January.
