22nd Eastern Gravity Meeting
Organized by the Department of Mathematics, Department of Physics, and CSCVR


The 22nd Eastern Gravity Meeting, hosted by UMass Dartmouth, will be held Friday, May 31 and Saturday, June 1, 2019 in North Dartmouth, MA. Further information, including registration, abstract submission, and recommended accommodations will be posted here shortly.

This annual regional meeting is open to researchers of all levels, from undergraduate students to faculty, in all areas of gravitational physics, including classical, quantum, theory, observation, and computation. The purpose of the conference is to encourage the interaction of researchers in the Northeastern region, although participants from all regions are welcomed.

The format of the meeting will follow the format of previous regional meetings where all participants may present a talk of approximately 10 to 15 minutes. Abstracts will be selected according to the order in which they are submitted. Therefore, to maximize chances of acceptance, it would be best to submit an abstract early. There is no registration fee. A prize for the best talk by a student will be given and so please indicate in your registration if you are a student.

Deadline for abstract submission and registration: May 20, 2019
