aarms Atlantic General Relativity Meeting 2021

The annual Atlantic General Relativity Conference (AGR2021) is scheduled to be hosted virtually at Bishop’s University in Sherbrooke, Québec during May 25-29, 2021. The Atlantic General Relativity Conference series of meetings has been a regular and annual feature of the Atlantic general relativity community for nearly three decades, and has recently developed to include more international participation. This series of meetings focuses on recent developments in all aspects of classical, quantum, and mathematical gravity and its goals including the dissemination of recent results, the circulation of ideas and methods, as well as the training of graduate students and postdoctoral fellows.
