This is the first announcement of the Bard Summer School on Quantum Gravity. The school will be held on the Annandale campus of Bard College from Sunday, June 9th through Sunday, June 16th, 2019. The scientific program features canonical and covariant approaches to quantum gravity and quantum cosmology. A unique feature of this school will be an afternoon computing lab where students will compute either a cosmological or quantum gravitational phenomenon from scratch. The website for the summer school is http://faculty.bard.edu/hhaggard/qgsummer/.
The school will be followed by the Loops’19 Conference (http://gravity.psu.edu/events/loops19/index-loops19.shtml) and the IGC@25 Multimessenger Universe Conference (http://gravity.psu.edu/events/igc25/index_igc25.shtml), both held at Pennsylvania State University on June 17th-21st and June 24th-27th, 2019, respectively. Free transport from the school to these conferences will be provided.
The application procedure for the school is available at http://faculty.bard.edu/hhaggard/qgsummer/ and applications are due March 29th, 2019.
