The 19th Eastern Gravity Meeting will be held at the University of New Hampshire, in Durham, NH (about an hour north of Boston on the New Hampshire seacoast) on May 26th and 27th, 2016. Participation is encouraged for researchers in all areas of gravitational physics, including classical, quantum, theory, observation, computation and experiment. Younger researchers, postdocs, and students are especially urged to attend and present their research as the regional gravity meetings traditionally provide excellent opportunities to give talks and discuss in a relaxed atmosphere. Since this is a regional meeting, most participants are expected to be from the Northeastern United States and Eastern Canada, but all are welcome.
Location and Time: The meeting will be held in DeMeritt Hall, home of the Department of Physics. Registration will start at 8:30 AM on Thursday and the meeting will begin at 9 AM. See the program page for more details.
Transportation and Lodging: Durham is approximately an hour by car from three major airports: Boston, Manchester, and Portland. The town is also on an Amtrak route that runs through Boston, with the stop roughly 500 feet from the Department of Physics. There are multiple lodgings available both in Durham and in the surrounding towns. The lodgings in Durham are roughly a ten to fifteen minute walk from the Physics Department. For more information see the Transportation and Lodging page.
Registration: In the tradition of past EGMs, no registration fee will be charged (and no financial support will be provided), but attendees are asked to register so that we can estimate a head count for refreshments.
Talks: The meeting will follow the format of previous Eastern Gravity Meetings with all presentations the same length (12 minute talk + 3 minutes for questions). We will make every effort to accommodate requests for talks as long as the schedule allows. Those who plan on giving a talk can submit their title and abstract when they register. If you do wish to give a talk, please register by May 19th so that we can arrange the program appropriately.
Student talk award: There will be a $200 prize for the best talk by a student, provided by the APS Topical Group on Gravitation.
