The 2018 Atlantic General Relativity Conference

The 2018 Atlantic General Relativity Conference will be held from June 6th to 7th at St. Francis Xavier University in Antigonish, Nova Scotia, Canada.  It is anticipated that the conference will be preceeded by a workshop on June 5th, details to follow. 

There will be no registration fee for either the workshop or the conference. The local organizing committee consists of Robert van den Hoogen, Viraj Sanghai and Alan Coley; the scientific organizing committee consists of  Ivan Booth, Alan Coley, Viqar Husain, Hari Kunduri, Sanjeev Seahra, Robert van den Hoogen and Edward Wilson-Ewing.

Both the meeting and workshop are financially supported by AARMS, the Perimeter Insititute and StFX.



On June 5th, there will be a one day workshop on a theme to be determined which will be aimed at the level of intermediate to advanced graduate students. The primary workshop speaker is Dr. Chris Clarkson (Queen Mary University of London) [to be confirmed].  The format of the day will include ample time for discussion and collaboration.

Atlantic GR Conference

As in previous years, the theme of Atlantic GR will be all aspects of classical and quantum gravity. The format will consist of an invited talk from Dr. Latham Boyle (Perimeter Institute) and contributed talks by anyone who wishes to speak. The time allotted to the contributed talks will be determined by the total number of speakers.


Directly following the Atlantic General Relativity Workshop and Conference, StFX is also hosting Theory Canada 13.
