Location:  Oxford, MS, USA

The Gravitation, Astrophysics, and Theoretical Physics group at the University of Mississippi will host the Gulf Coast Gravity Meeting on April 19-20, 2013.

The GCGM is a regional meeting that brings together researchers in all areas of gravitational physics from the south-east region of the US. The past two editions were at Louisiana State University (GCGM5, 2009) and Florida Atlantic University (GCGM6, 2011).

There is no registration fee. Students are warmly encouraged to participate. The Blue Apple Award, sponsored by the APS Topical Group in Gravitation, will be awarded to the best student presentation. To register, simply send your name and affiliation (as well as the title and abstract of your talk, if you wish to give a talk) to the following email address:

gcgm7 [at] phy [dot] olemiss [dot] edu

The same email address can be used for all inquiries related to the conference. We obtained financial support from the Oak Ridge Associated Universities (ORAU) Events Sponsorship Program. Please say explicitly in your email if you are a student or postdoc and if you would like to have travel support; we will divide the available amount between all students who request it, and if funds are still available we may be able to provide partial support also for postdocs.

Please book your hotel room as soon as possible. Most hotels are already partially or totally booked because of a tennis tournament, but we reserved two blocks of 30 rooms each at Super 8 and University Inn. More information is available at the conference website.
