    Thanks for flagging this, Christine. I didn't know about it. Several details struck me as interesting. They have already done a good bit of organizing even though it is still several months away: the list of participants and the talks they plan to give is already long. Also the seminar will continue over more than two weeks.
    The last week overlaps with the Nottingham QG2 conference (whose organizers include John Baez, Carlo Rovelli, Lee Smolin, John Barrett). It seems like this always happens with these summer conferences, there are too few weeks in the summer. Last year Loops '07 overlapped with Strings '07. But I suspect that the schedule conflict does not matter, since the Friedmann Seminar has a 15 day duration.

    I found a summary of the topics to be discussed here:


    Your post prompted me to check out Hyperspace

    which I often forget to do regularly, and I came across something else I hadn't known about. Something starting just ten days from now:
