Midwest Relativity Meeting 2020

October 22-24, University of Notre Dame, IN (Virtual)

Thank you to everyone who participated in the 30th Midwest Relativity Meeting. Despite the unfortunate circumstances that forced us to hold the meeting in a virtual format, we were please to see you all with unchanged enthusiasm!

We would like to congratulate Lindsay DeMarchi (Northwestern University), this year's winner of the Blue Apple Prize!

See you all next year at UIUC!

The 30th annual Midwest Relativity Meeting will be hosted by the Center for Astrophysics, and the Department of Physics of the University of Notre Dame from October 22-24, Thursday to Saturday.

The Midwest Relativity Meetings aim to bring together researchers from across the Midwest and beyond to discuss General Relativity and a broad range of topics in gravitational physics, including classical and quantum gravity, numerical relativity, relativistic astrophysics, cosmology, gravitational waves, experimental gravity, and other related topics.

As was in the past, talks will consist of short contributed papers in an informal atmosphere. Each participant may present a talk of ~15 minutes. Professors, post-docs, graduate students, and undergraduates working on relevant topics are encouraged to present their work. The Blue Apple Prize will be awarded to the best graduate student speaker.

Venue: Due to COVID-19 travel restrictions we will not be able to host you at our beautiful campus. Rather, we will be conducting the meeting virtually.

There is no registration fee. The deadline for abstract submission was October 16. Registration to attend the meeting is still open and can be accessed through the 'Registration' tab.

We look forward to seeing you at the 2020 Midwest Relativity meeting!

*We are not sending confirmation emails yet but as long as you have submitted the Google form below your registration was received and your abstract accepted for a talk. The talks schedule is posted on the "Program" page.
