Seventh Alexander Friedmann International Seminar On Gravitation And Cosmology

In summary, there is an upcoming event, the Friedmann Seminar, that will be held in João Pessoa, Brazil from Jun 19 to Jul 05 2008. The event has already done a lot of organizing, with a long list of participants and talks planned. The seminar will also overlap with the Nottingham QG2 conference, but this is not expected to be a problem due to the seminar's 15-day duration. Additionally, there is another event starting in ten days, the ESF science meeting on Loop Quantum Gravity and Spin Foam models in Zakopane, Poland. This workshop is by invitation only, and more information can be obtained from H Sahlmann and J Lewandowski.

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:

, thank you for sharing this information about the Seventh Alexander Friedmann International Seminar on Gravitation and Cosmology. This event sounds like an exciting opportunity for scientists and researchers to come together and discuss the latest developments and advancements in these fields.

I am particularly intrigued by the diverse range of talks scheduled for the event. From "Dark Matter and Dark Energy" to "Cosmological Perturbations and Inflation," it seems like there will be a wide variety of topics covered.

I am also pleased to see that the event will be held in Brazil, providing a platform for international collaboration and exchange of ideas. I believe that events like this are crucial for the advancement of science and the sharing of knowledge.

I am looking forward to learning more about the research and discussions that will take place at the Seventh Alexander Friedmann International Seminar. Thank you for bringing this event to my attention.
