## Main Question or Discussion Point

Registration deadline for Loops '07 is coming up

deadline for early registration is 25 April

late registration in May.

Looks like most splendid Loops conference yet (even includes string as a small auxilliary sub-department See Rozali's talk further down the page)

TOPICS COVERED

* Foundational questions of quantum gravity

* Loop quantum gravity

* Spin foam models

* Dynamical triangulations

* Causal sets

* String theory

* Cosmology related to quantum gravity

* Phenomenology of quantum gravity

==quote from provisional program for the June 2007 conference==

At this time the program is in an early planning stage. Below is the list of plenary speakers with titles of talks. Abstracts can be displayed by clicking on the title of the respective talk or by going to the abstracts page. When more detailed information on the program is available it will be posted on this site.

Martin Bojowald "Loop quantum cosmology and effective theory"

John F. Donoghue "Effective field theory and quantum general relativity"

Klaus Fredenhagen

Lucien Hardy "The causaloid formalism: a tentative framework for quantum gravity"

James B. Hartle "Generalizing Quantum Mechanics for Quantum Spacetime"

Sabine Hossenfelder "Phenomenological Quantum Gravity"

Bei-Lok B. Hu "Stochasticity and Nonlocality in Quantum-Classical and Micro-Macro Interfaces"

Fotini Markopoulou

Daniele Oriti

Alejandro Perez

Jorge Pullin "Uniform discretizations and spherically symmetric loop quantum gravity"
