Joint Canada Asia Pacific Conference on General Relativity and Relativistic Astrophysics 2018

JCAP-CGRRA 2018

University of Alberta
June 25 to 29, 2018

The Canadian Conference of General Relativity and Relativistic Astrophysics (CCGRRA) has been held in Canada every two years. The 17th such meeting was to be held  In 2018. Since June 2016, Canada has become a member of the Asia-Pacific Center for Theoretical Physics (APCTP). 

The first Joint Canada Asia Pacific Conference on General Relativity and Relativistic Astrophysics brings the two communities together and will be held at University of Alberta, Edmonton Canada, hosted by the Theoretical Physics Institute, Faculty of Science, June 25th-29th, 2018.

The goal of the conference is  to bring together both Canadian and international relativists for scientific discussion and exchange. The meetings is expected to be broadly based, covering the wide range of research including mathematical and numerical relativity, quantum gravity, string-theoretic approaches to gravity, relativistic astrophysics and cosmology.

In addition to the plenary lectures, time will be allotted in the afternoons for contributed talks from members of the national and international community. Post-docs and grad students are especially encouraged to contribute talks.
