Testing Gravity in Vancouver, January 23-26, 2019

Post by Levon Pogosian » August 07 2018

The registration is currently open for the 3rd Testing Gravity conference at SFU Harbour Centre in Vancouver, January 23-26, 2019. Like the 2015 and the 2017 meetings, TG2019 will feature the latest updates from the gravitational wave detectors, laboratory tests, cosmological surveys and other experiments, as well as discussions of recent theoretical advances.

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. The Testing Gravity conference series aims to provide theorists working on extensions of General Relativity with a realistic perspective on what aspects of their theories can be tested. On the other hand, the experimentalists and observers get a chance to learn about new ideas that their experiments can test.

There will be a one-day “school” on Wednesday, January 23rd, featuring five review lectures covering the key topics of the conference. The main conference, January 24-26, will include invited and contributed talks, and a poster session.

We are looking forward to seeing you in Vancouver.

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