BritGrav 15, Birmingham

The 15th British Gravity (BritGrav) Meeting will be held on 20–21 April 2015 at the University of Birmingham, organised by the Gravitational Physics Group.

The meeting covers all areas of gravity, classical and quantum, including astrophysics, cosmology, mathematical general relativity, gravitational-wave data analysis and instrumentation. It is intended to bring together the entire gravitational research community to further collaboration and allow young researchers to showcase their work.

We hope that all interested graduate students and post-docs will be able to give talks; there shall be talks by others if time allows. There is a prize for the best student talk sponsored by Classical & Quantum Gravity.

There is no conference fee, but participants are responsible for their own accommodation, meals and travel. Financial support for students from British or Irish institutions is available courtesy of the IOP. Tea and coffee will be provided in breaks.
