First Announcement: Atlantic general relativity 2016 conference and workshop
The 2016 Atlantic General Relativity Conference will be held on Thursday, June 23 to Friday, June 24 at Dalhousie University in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada. As in previous years, the theme of Atlantic GR will be all aspects of classical and quantum gravity. The format will consist of several invited talks and contributed talks by anyone who wishes to speak.
This year, Atlantic GR will be be preceded by a workshop hosted by the Atlantic Association for Research in the Mathematical Sciences (AARMS) collaborative research group (CRG) on the “Mathematical and physical aspects of black holes” from Saturday, June 18 to Wednesday, June 22. The workshop will also be at Dalhousie University. The bulk of the workshop will consist of invited lectures from leading experts on various aspects classical and quantum gravity delivered at a level suitable for intermediate or advanced graduate students (see website for details). The format will include ample time for discussion and collaboration.
We expect funding to partially or fully subsidize accommodation in Dalhousie residence for a limited number of participants. If you wish to request this support, you must fill out the online registration form before February 15, 2016.
There will be no registration fee for either the workshop or the conference. The local organizing committee consists of Alan Coley, Robert van den Hoogen and Sanjeev Seahra; the scientific organizing committee consists of Ivan Booth, Jack Gegenberg, Hari Kunduri and Viqar Husain.
