Field Theoretic Aspects of Gravity - FTAG 2013

IIT Gandhinagar, 5 - 8 Sep, 2013

FTAG - 2013

IXth FTAG Meeting @ IITGN

Field Theoretic Aspects of Gravity (FTAG) is a series of conferences of general relativists and gravity researchers in India. Previous FTAG meetings have been arranged in premier research institutes like HRI (Allahabad), BITS-Pilani (Goa campus) and IUCAA (Pune). A number of distinguished scientists and scholars have attended these meetings.

The next FTAG meeting (IXth in the series) will be organized at Indian Institute of Technology, Gandhinagar (IIT GN) from 5th September to 8th, 2013. IITGN is rapidly emerging as a world class university with excellent infrastructure and resources. The organization of FTAG 2013 at IITGN would create a bridge between scientists and engineers in view of current efforts in India to develop national experimental facilities related to gravitational physics.

The main focus of this year FTAG meeting will be various issues related to classical and quantum nature of gravitation, black hole physics, gravitational wave and cosmology.

The format of the lectures will be informal to allow free discussions and interventions by the audience. Participation in FTAG 2013 is only by invitation.
