The registration is currently open for the 2nd Testing Gravity conference in Vancouver, January 26−28, 2017. The conference will provide an opportunity for experts on different ways of testing Gravity to meet and exchange their ideas. There will be a one-day school on Wed Jan 25 with lectures covering the key topics of the conference.

Testing Gravity remains a topical theme because of the unexplained nature of dark matter and dark energy, and the long-standing failure to reconcile gravity with quantum physics. It is particularly relevant given the recent detection of gravity waves by LIGO. The conference will provide an opportunity for theorists, experimentalist and observers to discuss new ways of testing GR and some of the alternative gravity theories, taking advantage of improving technologies and new observational windows. Topics will include gravitational waves, pulsars, black holes; terrestrial tests, atomic interferometry, gravity on short distances; particle cosmology, dark matter; cosmological probes - CMB, 21 cm, redshift surveys, weak lensing; modified gravity theories; quantum gravity and emergent gravity. The school on Wed Jan 25 will feature four lectures providing background into main topics covered by the conference. The conference, Jan 26−28, will feature invited and contributed talks, and a poster session.

For further information and to register please visit the conference website at

Local information, such as suggested accommodation, will be posted soon.

We are looking forward to seeing you in Vancouver.

The Scientific Organizing Committee: Andrei Frolov, Makoto Fujiwara, Levon Pogosian, Maxim Pospelov, Dimitrios Psaltis, and Douglas Scott
