5th PI/UofT/CITA Workshop (CIAR Cosmology & Gravity focus group)

Conference Date: 
Lundi, Décembre 6, 2004 (All day)
Scientific Areas: 
Particle Physics
Quantum Fields and Strings
Quantum Gravity


This mini-workshop will be the next of an ongoing series of one-day meetings between researchers at Perimeter, CITA and University of Toronto. These meetings are held to share new ideas and encourage interactions in our common fields of interest: superstrings, cosmology, particle theory and quantum gravity.


The meeting will be held in the Physics Building of the University of Toronto on Monday December 6. As usual, the format of the meeting will be a series of short 30-minute talks to seed informal discussion. The seminars will start at 11am in the Physics Lounge seminar room -- refreshments will be available starting at 10:30am. The afternoon session will be held in the CITA Lounge.
