Gravitation: A Decennial Perspective


To celebrate its tenth anniversary, the Penn State Center for Gravitational Physics and Geometry will host an international conference entitled Gravitation: A Decennial Perspective.

Conference Dates
Sunday, 8 June - Thursday, 12 June, 2003

Conference Description
The conference will cover all major areas of gravitational physics with focus on the four fields which have been actively pursued at the Center for Gravitational Physics and Geometry: quantum gravity, analytical and numerical general relativity and gravitational radiation. Since this is a decennial celebration, this conference will take a longer term view than most meetings in our field. Thus, the plenary talks will highlight major developments in the field over the past decade and provide vision for the next.

Each afternoon, there will be parallel sessions on the four focus areas. These will feature shorter invited talks as well as contributed talks selected by session organizers. Each talk will be of at least 20 minutes duration. There may be poster sessions for contributions that could not be included in the oral presentations.
