This conference is the 5th of a regular series, the Quantum Gravity in Paris meetings, that aims at allowing stimulating exchanges between different approaches to quantum gravity in all its aspects. The emphasis is on the fundamental definition of the theory but the conference will also include talks on possible applications to black holes, cosmology or particle physics. A characteristic feature of this series is to gather researchers from the many different approaches to quantum gravity, and to mix senior with younger invited speakers. The workshop will hopefully set the framework for new collaborations between researchers working on such fundamental issues, as well as strengthening the ties among research institutes involved.
