The Sixth Experimental Search for Quantum Gravity Meeting
The latest in a series of meetings on possible experimental signatures of quantum gravity. Past meetings have been at Perimeter (2007,2012), NORDITA (2010), SISSA (2014), and FIAS (2016).
May 18, 9:00 AM – May 22, 5:00 PM
University of New Hampshire,
Durham, NH

Topics

Tests of the quantization of gravity via entanglement

Tests of spacetime symmetries

Quantum gravity signatures in cosmology

Strong field observations

Analog models

 

Schedule

The meeting will consist of five days from May 18th-22nd.  There will be two morning sessions and an afternoon session with ample time allotted for panel discussion, lunch and dinner to facilitate interactions amongst participants.  Depending on speaker availability the topic list for each day is subject to change, but a tentative schedule is below.

Speakers

The speaker list will become available closer to the conference.

 

The University of New Hampshire is an hour north of Boston by car or train.  There is a direct line on the Amtrak train from Boston to campus (the Downeaster) and once on campus a car is not required.  Three airports (Boston Logan, Manchester, and Portland) are all within an hour's drive. There is bus service from Boston to Portsmouth and Dover, two local towns 10-15 minutes from campus.  Local transportation will also be available.
