SCIENTIFIC PROGRAMS AND ACTIVITIES

April 16, 2014
THE FIELDS INSTITUTE FOR RESEARCH IN MATHEMATICAL SCIENCES

May 21-23, 2014
15th Canadian Conference on General Relativity and Relativistic Astrophysics (CCGRRA XV)
University of Winnipeg

The 15th Canadian Conference on General Relativity and Relativistic Astrophysics will be held at the University of Winnipeg, May 21-23, 2014. As with other meetings in this series, its goal is to bring together both Canadian and international relativists for scientific discussion and exchange. These meetings are broadly based, covering the wide range of research done in Canada 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.
