Strings 2009 conference will be held in Rome, 22-26 July
http://strings2009.roma2.infn.it/home.html
The plan is all the talks will be invited plenary. There will be no contributed talks in parallel sessions. This is the same plan as was followed by Strings 2008 at CERN in August.

But may it's true that "all roads lead to Rome". The question is just which roads are the fastest, through the string bush, or some other way.

I guess I didn't have a clue how right I was

First Announcement
International Conference on Quantum Gravity: Loops '09

The annual international conference on non-perturbative/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...

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 space-time. Here, the main approaches will be introduced by some of the experts in the fields, with a focus on the resulting models for early-universe cosmology.
Week 2: Cosmological and high-energy phenomenology. The various implications of fundamental theories for cosmology and high-energy physics will be discussed.
Week 3: Cosmology and high-energy physics. In this week, a general discussion of the potential of cosmological and high-energy 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...

Experimental Search for Quantum Gravity
http://www.perimeterinstitute.ca/en/...he_hard_facts/

The schedule of talks day by day:

Abstracts of about 40 of the talks (several seem quite interesting):
http://www.perimeterinstitute.ca/Eve...r_QG/Schedule/

About 60 participants listed--nice mix of AsymSafeQG, LoopQG, observatory and lab QG Pheno, other:
http://www.perimeterinstitute.ca/Eve.../Participants/
It surprised me to see how much lab work they plan to discuss: new kinds of clocks and other instruments applicable to QG.

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 (GR-20) 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 GR-20 and the Loops 2013 conferences planned for July.

http://th-www.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.
GR-20 Warsaw (week of 7 July):
http://gr20-amaldi10.edu.pl/index.php?id=18
Loops 2013 Perimeter Institute (week of 21 July):
http://www.perimeterinstitute.ca/conferences/loops-13

Jerzy Lewandowski, the main organizer of the Warsaw GR-20 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.
