BritGrav 9

The Ninth British Gravity Meeting

School of Physics and Astronomy, Cardiff University

15-16th April

BritGrav 9 is a meeting dedicated to bringing together the gravitational research community of the UK and beyond, and to provide a forum for the exchange of ideas. It aims to cover all aspects of gravitational physics, both theoretical and experimental, including cosmology, mathematical general relativity, quantum gravity, gravitational astrophysics, gravitational wave data analysis, and instrumentation.

The meeting will be concluded with an evening public lecture by Professor Kip Thorne, Caltech, The Warped Side of the Universe: from the Big Bang to Black Holes and Gravitational Waves. For details, see the poster or download the slides.

The following day is dedicated to LPGFest.

There will be no conference fee. Participants are encouraged to submit an abstract for a talk on their recent work. Preference will be given to students and postdocs.

Some travel support will be available for students. A 50 pound prize will be given for the best student talk.
