Which talks' input will contribute most to future research in Loop-and-allied quantum gravity?

Since the poll is multiple choice, it's possible to vote for several, if you choose. Abstract summaries follow in the next post.

PIRSA talks are online video. The ILQGS links are to the slides PDF. To get the online audio, replace .pdf by .wav in the URL. You will then be able to listen to the talk while you scroll through the slides.

For reference, here's a link to 2011's 4th qtr MIP poll (MIP="Most Important Paper(s)" in the indicated field of research.) https://www.physicsforums.com/showthread.php?t=563724

This quarter, for a change we're considering online

For those unfamiliar with the online seminar series, PIRSA stands for "Perimeter Institute Recorded Seminar Archive" and ILQGS stands for "International Loop Quantum Gravity Seminar". The ILQGS is held at several locations simultaneously via teleconferencing connection.

**R**ecorded**S**eminar talks, instead of papers. So instead of MIP it's a MIRS poll.For those unfamiliar with the online seminar series, PIRSA stands for "Perimeter Institute Recorded Seminar Archive" and ILQGS stands for "International Loop Quantum Gravity Seminar". The ILQGS is held at several locations simultaneously via teleconferencing connection.
