The sixth International Conference on Gravitation and Cosmology will be held in December.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Here is the list of plenary speakers.

http://meghnad.iucaa.ernet.in/~icgc07/sub/plenary.htm

There are 21 plenary speakers listed of which SEVEN are discussing (non-string and string) Quantum Gravity.

Parampreet Singh---Big Bang Singularity Resolution in Loop Quantum Cosmology

...

Sumit Das---Black Holes and Hawking Evaporation in String Theory

Alejandro Corichi---Black Holes in Loop Quantum Gravity

Madhavan Varadarajan---Black Hole Information Loss Puzzle in LQG

Carlo Rovelli---Graviton Propagator

Laurent Freidel---Low Energy imprints of Quantum Gravity

...

Martin Reuter---Asymptotic safety

This is a broad spectrum conference covering all areas---observational, Xray BH study, numerical work, classic GR, gravity wave, CMB, Gravity Probe B---the whole shebang.

So the range of topics is similar to the Marcel Grossmann meetings and the GRG: big international conferences which are held every three years and give an idea of what cosmologists are interested in these days.

The remarkable thing about ICGC-07 is that one THIRD of the plenary talks are (non-string and string) QUANTUM GRAVITY.

This same balance of interest is reflected in the focus of the parallel sessions, where contributed talks will be presented. There will be three parallel sessions, one of which is focused on QG.

Parallel Workshop Sessions

I Classical General Relativity and Gravitational Waves

II Cosmology

III Quantum Gravity
