The 15th Canadian Conference on General Relativity and Relativistic Astrophysics (CCGRRA XV) will be the latest in a series of meetings bringing together Canadian and international researchers, including students, for scientific discussion and exchange of ideas. A wide range of closely related topics will be covered, including mathematical relativity, numerical approaches to general relativity, string theory, loop quantum gravity, cosmology, gravitational waves, and compact astrophysical objects. All of these areas have seen substantial progress in recent years, including the development of new techniques in numerical calculations relevant to gravitational wave observatories such as LIGO, new observations in astrophysics and cosmology, string-inspired models of cosmology, and theoretical insights into black hole information.
