Location:  Sheffield, United Kingdom

The 13th BritGrav (British Gravity) Meeting will be held on 3-4 April 2013 in the School of Mathematics and Statistics at the University of Sheffield. The meeting covers all areas of classical and quantum gravity including astrophysics, cosmology and experiments, and is intended to further collaborations and allow young researchers to showcase their work. The programme will begin with coffee at 10:30am on Wednesday 3rd April and will end at about 5pm on Thursday 4th April. The programme will include a reception generously sponsored by Classical and Quantum Gravity.

There is no registration fee, and participants are responsible for their own accommodation, meals and travel. We hope that all PhD students and postdocs who wish to will be able to give a talk, and we will schedule talks by others if time allows. Faculty are reassured that by submitting an abstract they will not be depriving a student of the opportunity to talk.

If you plan to participate, please register before Friday 15th March at the website:

If you want to give a talk, please give a title and abstract when you register or by e-mail to britgrav[AT] The deadline for abstracts is Friday 15th March.

A limited amount of funding will be available from the Gravitational Physics Group of the Institute of Physics to assist with travel and accommodation costs for research students, particularly those based in the UK. Please contact britgrav[AT] if you would like to apply for such funding.

More information will be posted on the above website. Please send any queries to britgrav[AT]
