20th Pacific Coast Gravity Meeting.
The 20th Pacific Coast Gravity Meeting will be held at the California
Institute of Technology, Pasadena, on March 26 and 27, 2004.
In keeping with its tradition, this will be an open, relaxed, and
informal conference. We are inviting researchers and students
interested in all areas of gravitational physics: classical and
quantum gravity, general relativistic astrophysics and cosmology, quantum cosmology,
gravitational waves, and experimental gravity. Because this is a
regional meeting, many attendees will be from the western United
States, but all are welcome.
There will be no plenary lectures. Instead,
all participants, and especially postdocs and graduate students, are
encouraged to contribute short, introductory talks on their current
research, with the aim of fostering communication and understanding
among gravitational physicists with different backgrounds. Everyone
who requests to speak will be given equal time (plausibly between 10
and 15 minutes, including a question period). The Jocelyn Bell Burnell
prize will be awarded for the best talk given by a student at the
The 20th PCGM will begin at 9am, on March 26, in room 201,
E. Bridge, Caltech (see the practical
information page for directions). The Scientific Program will be
posted on this website shortly before the meeting, and will be
distributed to participants on March 26.
There will be no registration fee, but no financial support is
available for travel expenses. We request that participants register, and submit the titles of
their talks if they wish to speak, by March 18, 2003.
