13th EASTERN GRAVITY MEETING

Department of Physics
North Carolina State University
May 21 - 22, 2010


Announcement

The 13th Eastern Gravity Meeting will be hosted by the Department of Physics at North Carolina State University. The meeting will take place in Riddick Hall on the NCSU campus. Participation is encouraged by researchers -- especially students -- in all areas of gravitational physics, including classical, quantum, theory, observation, computation and experiment. Since this is a regional meeting, most participants are expected to come from the east coast of North America, but all are welcome.

Talks

The meeting will follow the format of previous Eastern Gravity Meetings (and other regional gravity meetings such as the Pacific Coast Gravity Meetings and Midwest Relativity Meetings). All presentations will be the same length (approximately 10-15 minutes), and every effort will be made to accommodate all submissions.

Registration

No registration fee will be charged, and no financial support will be provided. All attendees are encouraged to register. This will help the organizers in their planning. Attendees who would like to present a talk must register for the conference.

Location

All talks will take place in room 321 of Riddick Hall, located on the main NCSU campus. Riddick 321 is in the middle of the building, across from the Riddick Hearth.

Restaurants

There are many Restaurants on Hillsborough Street, near Riddick Hall.

Lodging

A block of rooms has been set aside at the Holiday Inn/Brownstone Hotel. The conference rate is $80/night. The deadline for this special rate is Thursday, April 29, 2010.

It is approximately 1/2 mile from Riddick Hall.
