BritGrav 12 in Southampton, UK (2nd circular)

The 12th BritGrav (British Gravity) Meeting will be held on 3/4 April 2012 in the School of Mathematics, University of Southampton. The programme begins with coffee at 10.30 on Tuesday, with the first talk at 11, and ends at 4.30 on Wednesday. The meeting covers all areas of classical and quantum gravity including astrophysics, cosmology and experiments, and is intended to further collaborations and allow young researchers to showcase their work.

There is no registration fee, and participants are responsible for their own accommodation, meals and travel. All PhD students and postdocs will be able to give a talk, others if time allows. Current planning is for all talks to last 20 minutes including questions.

Tea and coffee will be provided in breaks, lunch can be bought on campus, and there will be a wine reception on Tuesday after the end of the talks programme. A small prize will be awarded for the best talk by a PhD student.

If you plan to participate, please email Carsten Gundlach, cjg[AT]soton.ac.uk. If you want to give a talk, please send a title and abstract (which can be amended later). A list of the talks submitted so far can be found on http://www.soton.ac.uk/~cjg/britgrav12.

A limited amount of funding will be available from the Gravitational Physics Group of the Institute of Physics to assist PhD students with travel and accommodation costs. If you want to apply for this, please let us know as soon as possible.
