27-28 April 2020

As a consequence of the global coronavirus outbreak, we have unfortunately had to cancel the BritGrav meeting that was planned for 27-28 April. In due course, and depending on the development of the coronavirus situation, we will review the possibility of holding the conference at a later date.

The 20th BritGrav meeting will be hosted by the Relativity Group in the School of Mathematics and Statistics at University College Dublin.

The aim of this two-day meeting, to be held on Monday 27 April and Tuesday 28 April 2020, is to bring together early-stage researchers working on all aspects of gravitational physics, including astrophysics, cosmology, general relativity, quantum gravity, gravitational-wave data analysis and instrumentation, to exchange results and ideas.

In keeping with BritGrav tradition, the meeting will consist of short talks with priority to be given to PhD students and early-career researchers. Participants are responsible for their own meals, travel and accommodation. Limited funding is provided by the IOP Gravitational Physics Group, to support travel for students.

Registration is free. The deadline for application for financial support and abstract submission is 15 March 2020.

At the end of the meeting, we will award The Best Student Talk Prize, sponsored by the IOP Publishing Group.

Local Organisers: Barry Wardell, Adrian Ottewill, Niels Warburton, Sarp Akcay, Conor O'Toole, Josh Mathews, Leanne Durkan, Benjamin Leather, Philip Lynch and Kevin Kiely.
