    five days at Perimeter, the week starting 4 december.
    two cosmology sessions
    two QG sessions
    two string sessions
    two on quantum information
    one on quantum foundations

    young researchers only. sounds like a good idea to me. what do you think?
    Laurent Freidel is one of the organizers. I guess it will be largely postdocs and PhD students doing thesis

    here is the schedule:

    the list of participants has not been published, when it is available it will be here:

    It seems like a smart thing to put those topics together so it is not for example exclusively string (QG conferences normally invite string people to get some variety but it doesnt usually work the other way around---in this case the diversity is explicit, there isn't even a majority field)

    What does young mean?

    This reminds me of something I read about in Thorne's book - a 1975 conference on black holes, organized by Bill Press, to which only people under the age of thirty were invited.
