First Announcement
International Conference on Quantum Gravity: Loops '09 The annual international conference on nonperturbative/background independent quantum gravity will take place from 2 to 8 August 2009 at Beijing Normal University in China. It stands in the tradition of Loops '04 in Marseille, Loops '05 in Potsdam and Loops '07 in Morelia, but is more concentrated on the issues and approaches closely related to loop quantum gravity. The main topics include: * Loop quantum gravity * Loop quantum cosmology and other symmetric models * Spin foams and their low energy ramifications * Fundamental questions of quantum gravity * Cosmology related to quantum gravity * Phenomenology of quantum gravity.

The second post above was ruled out 1 week after its "detection" at ~3 sigma. This is about the same precision of the sign above, and it is only 1 sign at 150 GeV. The number 5 comes due to that the theory to which the search parameters were fixed yield 5 higgs...

Thomas Thiemann is organizing a 2012 October school on Quantum Geometry to be held at Erlangen
http://www.gravity.physik.fau.de/school/school.shtml The detailed program will be posted on this page: http://www.gravity.physik.fau.de/sch...ool_prog.shtml Jerzy Lewandowski will be the main person in charge of the LQG lectures. There will be some other QG topics besides Loop. For example approaches to QG via QFT on curved spacetime and via groupvalued momentum. ======================= Thiemann's announcement reminds me that it might be helpful to list links to upcoming QG (quantum geometry/gravity) schools, workshops, conferences: PRAGUEjune "Relativity and Gravitation" (Ashtekar, Lewandowski, Barbour, Gibbons, Nicolai, Wald, Will and others) http://ae100prg.mff.cuni.cz/program BEIJINGaugust LQG school (Ashtekar, Lewandowski, Barrett, Engle, Livine and others) http://physics.bnu.edu.cn/summerschool/en/index.php TIANJINaugust "Groups 29" conference (Lewandowski in charge of the LQG session) http://www.cim.nankai.edu.cn/activit...0820/index.htm VIENNAseptember "Quantum Physics Meets Gravity" school (including LQG lectures by Rovelli) http://coqus.at/events/summerschool2012/ PORTUGALseptember "QG and Integrable Systems" (Freidel[tbc], Louis Crane and others) http://www.fctec.ualg.pt/qisg/speakers.html ERLANGENoctober "Emerging Fields" school (incl.

A potentially interesting conference next month in Stockholm:
Perspectives of Fundamental Cosmology google "fundamental cosmology stockholm" to get the website. http://agenda.albanova.se/conference...py?confId=2998 ==quote== Week 1: Fundamental theories of spacetime. Here, the main approaches will be introduced by some of the experts in the fields, with a focus on the resulting models for earlyuniverse cosmology. Week 2: Cosmological and highenergy phenomenology. The various implications of fundamental theories for cosmology and highenergy physics will be discussed. Week 3: Cosmology and highenergy physics. In this week, a general discussion of the potential of cosmological and highenergy observations will be carried out. Week 4: Several combinations of topics covered in the previous weeks are possible to arrive at concluding statements. (Details of this week will be scheduled short notice, capturing those topics that have emerged as the most important ones.) ==endquote== Chairs: Hossenfelder, Giesel, Sakellariadou, Bojowald Other participants folks here might recognize: Lewandowski, Kiefer, Thiemann, Calcagni, Brandenberger, Ambjorn, Loll, Mavromatos, Sotiriou, Nelson, Steinhacker, Campiglia...

2013 Zakopane School (June 28  July 7)
This will be a QG+related school. It will take place in the Polish mountain resort (where several LQG schools and workshops have been held in recent years) and it will precede a major triennial conference on General Relativity and Gravitation (GR20) which will this time be held in Warsaw. So the Zakopane school is one way that QG grad students and young researchers can warm up for the GR20 and the Loops 2013 conferences planned for July. http://thwww.if.uj.edu.pl/school/20...rs&titles.html This time the school has a broader range of topics and is funded by Polish institutions instead of the ESF (the EU science foundation) which sponsored the earlier Zakopane QG schools and workshops. But as you can see there is some overlap: Jan AMBJORN (NBI Copenhagen) TBA Abhay ASHTEKAR* (PennState) Quantum Gravity and Cosmology Eugenio BIANCHI (Perimeter Inst.) TBA Renate LOLL (Utrecht Univ.) Simplicial Gravity Ilya MANDEL (Birmingham Univ.) LIGO Experiment Viatcheslav MUKHANOV (Munchen Univ.) TBA Hans RINGSTROM (KTH Stockholm) Cauchy Problem in General Relativity Ulrich SPERHAKE (CALTECH) TBA Thomas THIEMANN (FAU Erlangen) TBA David TONG (Cambridge) AdS/CMT Robert M. WALD (Chicago Univ.) Thermodynamics and Stability of Black Holes Toby WISEMAN (Imperial College) Ads/CMT N.N. (VIRGO) VIRGO Experiment Here are links for the large triennial conferences taking place later that month. GR20 Warsaw (week of 7 July): http://gr20amaldi10.edu.pl/index.php?id=18 Loops 2013 Perimeter Institute (week of 21 July): http://www.perimeterinstitute.ca/conferences/loops13 Jerzy Lewandowski, the main organizer of the Warsaw GR20 conference, writes this about the Zako school: ==quote== before GR20/Amaldi10 there will be a school on: loop quantum gravity, simplicial gravity, mathematical and numerical gravity, topics in classical gravity + experiment, conformal symmetry in condensed matter physics, conformal fielfd theory and AdS/CFT correspondence. ==endquote== So we can see that there is a nice range of interrelated topics for which he and others have been getting speakers.
