Registration for Loops ’24 is now open. Submission of abstracts for the parallel session talks is part of the registration process if desired. The early registration deadline is April 1st, 2024. Abstract submissions will be fully considered until March 1st, 2024.

Loops ’24 is the most recent in a long tradition of biennial meetings focused on loop quantum gravity and background independent approaches to quantum gravity. The conference will be held from Monday, May 6 through Friday, May 10, 2024, at the campus of Florida Atlantic University in Fort Lauderdale, Florida (USA). Plenary sessions will be held in the auditorium of the Broward County Main Library one block away from the campus.

Confirmed invited plenary speakers include:

Seth Asante (Friedrich-Schiller-Universitaet Jena)
Abhay Ashtekar (Penn State)
Pietro Dona (CPT Marseille)
Marc Geiller (ENS Lyon)
Florian Girelli (U. Waterloo)
Viqar Hussain (U. New Brunswick)
Boafei Li (Zhejiang U. of Tech.)
Hongguang Liu (Friedrich-Alexander-U. Erlangen-Nuernberg)
Qiaoyin Pan (Florida Atlantic U.)
Andreas Pithis (Ludwig-Maximilians-Universitaet Muenchen)
Wojciech Kaminksi (U. Warszawski)
Dongxue Qu (Perimeter Institute)
Suvrat Raju (Tata Institute of Fundamental Research)
Parampreet Singh (LSU)
Thomas Thiemann (Friedrich-Alexander-U. Erlangen-Nuernberg)
Wolfgang Wieland (Friedrich-Alexander-U. Erlangen-Nuernberg)
Edward Wilson-Ewing (U. New Brunswick)
Cong Zhang (Friedrich-Alexander-U. Erlangen-Nuernberg)

In addition, a public lecture will be given on the Boca Raton Campus on Wednesday evening by Carlo Rovelli (CPT Marseille, U. Western Ontario, Perimeter Institute).

The conference will highlight recent developments in canonical loop quantum gravity, covariant loop quantum gravity (spin foams), and other approaches to quantum gravity, as well as applications to symmetry-reduced models, quantum cosmology, black holes in quantum gravity, and other topics. Foundational, mathematical, numerical and phenomenological aspects will be covered.
The conference is preceded by the Loop Quantum Gravity Summer School 2024 (Blaumann School for Quantum Gravity), also held at the Broward County Main Library auditorium.
A welcome reception will be held on Sunday, May 5th, and the conference banquet will be held on Wednesday, May 8th, 2024. Additional details are available on the conference website (see the external link).
