Atlantic General Relativity Conference 2018

The 2018 Atlantic General Relativity Conference 

The 2018 Atlantic General Relativity Conference will be held from June 6th to 7th at St. Francis Xavier University in Antigonish, Nova Scotia, Canada.  The conference will be preceeded by a workshop on June 5th. 

There will be no registration fee for either the workshop or the conference. The local organizing committee consists of Robert van den Hoogen, Viraj Sanghai and Alan Coley; the scientific organizing committee consists of  Ivan Booth, Alan Coley, Viqar Husain, Hari Kunduri, Sanjeev Seahra, Robert van den Hoogen and Edward Wilson-Ewing.

Both the meeting and workshop are financially supported by AARMS, the Perimeter Insititute and StFX.

On June 5th, there will be a one day workshop on a theme to be determined which will be aimed at the level of intermediate to advanced graduate students. The primary workshop speaker is Dr. Chris Clarkson (Queen Mary University of London) who will lecture on the topic of "GR effects in cosmology from a perturbative perspective".  Welcome, Registration and a light lunch will begin at 11:30 am on June 5th with the first presentation beginning at 12:30 pm.  Presentations will be interspersed with coffee breaks throughout the afternoon and the Workshop will be expected to end by 6:00 pm.

As in previous years, the theme of Atlantic GR will be all aspects of classical and quantum gravity. The format will consist of an invited talk from Dr. Latham Boyle (Perimeter Institute) on "CPT symmetric universe" and contributed talks by anyone who wishes to speak. The time allotted to the contributed talks will be determined by the total number of speakers. All talks for the conference are expected to be between 9:00 am and 5:00 pm each day.  A detailed scheduled will be available in May.

Directly following the Atlantic General Relativity Workshop and Conference, StFX is also hosting Theory Canada 13.
