13th EASTERN GRAVITY MEETING
Department of Physics
North Carolina State University
May 21 - 22, 2010
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
There are many Restaurants on Hillsborough Street, near Riddick Hall.
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. You should reference
"EGM13 Physics Conference" or "PHY" when making your reservation.
The Holiday Inn/Brownstone is essentially the only hotel within walking distance of the NCSU
campus. It is approximately 1/2 mile from Riddick Hall.
