7th Gulf Coast Gravity Meeting (registration deadline and logistics)

We decided to set a deadline of March 15 for registration. To register, please send an email with your name and affiliation (plus the title and abstract of your talk, if you wish to give a talk) to the following address:

gcgm7[AT]phy.olemiss.edu

We encourage you to plan your travel in advance, because we recently found out that a tennis tournament is taking place at the same time as GCGM7, so many hotels in town are already full. We booked blocks of rooms at discounted rates at Super 8 and University Inn. A limited (and slightly more costly) number of rooms is also available at Hampton Inn/Holiday Inn (they are run by the same company). Please make your reservations by the following dates:

* March 18 for Super 8
* April 1 for University Inn

In all cases, mention that you are attending the Gulf Coast Gravity Meeting to obtain the discounted rate. More details on travel and lodging are available at the conference website.

7th Gulf Coast Gravity Meeting (last announcement)

The Gravitation, Astrophysics, and Theoretical Physics group at the University of Mississippi will host the Gulf Coast Gravity Meeting on April 19-20, 2013.

The GCGM is a regional meeting that brings together researchers in all areas of gravitational physics from the south-east region of the US. The past two editions were at Louisiana State University (GCGM5, 2009) and Florida Atlantic University (GCGM6, 2011).

There is no registration fee. Students are warmly encouraged to participate. The Blue Apple Award, sponsored by the APS Topical Group in Gravitation, will be awarded to the best student presentation. To register, simply send your name and affiliation (as well as the title and abstract of your talk, if you wish to give a talk) to the following email address:

gcgm7 [at] phy [dot] olemiss [dot] edu

The same email address can be used for all inquiries related to the conference. We obtained financial support from the Oak Ridge Associated Universities (ORAU) Events Sponsorship Program. Please say explicitly in your email if you are a student or postdoc and if you would like to have travel support; we will divide the available amount between all students who request it, and if funds are still available we may be able to provide partial support also for postdocs.

Please book your hotel room as soon as possible. Most hotels are already partially or totally booked because of a tennis tournament, but we reserved two blocks of 30 rooms each at Super 8 and University Inn. More information is available at the conference website.

Seventh Gulf Coast Gravity Meeting, Oxford, Mississippi

The Gravitation, Astrophysics, and Theoretical Physics group at the University of Mississippi will host the Seventh Gulf Coast Gravity Meeting (GCGM7) on April 19-20, 2013. The GCGM is a regional meeting that brings together researchers in all areas of gravitational physics from the south-east region of the United States. The past two editions were at Louisiana State University (GCGM5, 2009) and Florida Atlantic University (GCGM6, 2011). This is the second GCGM organized by Ole Miss (the first one was GCGM4, 2008).

The workshop is meant to be informal and student presentations are welcome. There will be no registration fee. To register, simply send an email with your name and affiliation to the following address:

gcgm7 [at] phy [dot] olemiss [dot] edu

We don’t have travel funding at the moment, but we are looking for ways to support students and postdocs. Please say explicitly in your email if you are a student or postdoc and if you would like to have travel support in case it becomes available. The email address listed above can be used for all inquiries related to the conference.

We are looking forward to seeing you in Oxford next Spring.
