Quantum Gravity 2020

COVID-19 information for researchers and visitors

Conference Date: 
Lundi, Juillet 13, 2020 (All day) to Vendredi, Juillet 17, 2020 (All day)
Scientific Areas: 
Cosmology
Particle Physics
Quantum Foundations
Quantum Gravity
Quantum Information


Important Information Regarding COVID-19 Coronavirus
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this event will now take place virtually.


The conference “Quantum Gravity 2020“ has a deliberately broad scope. We aim to include participants from all current approaches to quantum gravity, as well as researchers working on the phenomenology of quantum gravity. The main goal of the meeting is to assess the progress made and to constructively and openly discuss open questions in our understanding of quantum gravity.

A second goal is to work towards combining the insights gained in the various approaches. In its overall goal as well as the format, this conference will differ from more specialized meetings that focus on specific quantum-gravity approaches.

We hope that this inaugural conference “Quantum Gravity“ can make a contribution to bridging the gaps between quantum gravity approaches, and bring the entire community together for a constructive and fruitful exchange.

The deadline to register for this event is April 30, 2020.  Registration will close before this date if capacity is met. Registration for this event is now closed.

Scientific questions about the event should be sent to QG2020@perimeterinstitute.ca 
Administrative questions should be directed to Stephanie Mohl smohl@perimeterinstitute.ca
