http://www.hostalcruzchica.com.ar/

This is the fourth in a new series (“Grav”) of conferences organized by the General Relativity and Gravitation Group at FaMAF (Universidad Nacional de Córdoba) since the year 2006. We expect to have a Grav meeting every two years from now on.

The conference is intended to bring together specialists working on gravitation and closely related topics, including classical and quantum gravity, gravity in arbitrary dimensions, astrophysics and astro-particle physics.

Graduate students and advanced undergraduate students are encouraged to apply, some funds will be available to cover living expenses for students, as well as postdocs and young researchers. The working languages of the conference will be English (mostly), and Spanish.

A preliminary (as of December 2010) list of confirmed speakers includes:

Andrés Aceña, AEI, Germany.
Florian Beyer, University of Otago, New Zealand.
Mario Díaz, The Unversity of Texas at Brownsville, USA.
Helmut Friedrichs, AEI, Germany.
Heinz O. Kreiss, KTH, Sweden.
Luis Lehner, Perimeter Institute, Canada.
Jorge Pullin, LSU, USA.
Martin Reiris, AEI, Germany.
Robert Wald, Universty of Chicago, USA.
