Dear Colleagues,

It is our great pleasure to announce l’Agape 2019, the third edition of a summer-school of theoretical physics, which will be held in the mountains of the Massif Central (France) from July 27th to August 3rd 2019.

L'Agape sees a partition between six 4-hour courses given in the mornings and scientific activities in the afternoons. The series of courses covers a large field of topics in theoretical physics:

Towards a more efficient model of particle physics by Cohl Furey (University of Cambridge)

The two-fold role of observables in Classical and Quantum Kinematics by Federico Zalamea (EFREI Paris)

Timeless statistical mechanics and applications to quantum gravity by Isha Kotecha (AEI Potsdam)

Cosmological field theories by Scott Melville (University of Cambridge)

Foundations of Quantum Theory by Emily Adlam (University of Cambridge) (to be confirmed)

Introduction to (linear) logics for physicists by Titouan Carette (LORIA, Université de Lorraine)

This school’s special appeal and particularity lies in the broad range of its topics, the creative format of the “scientific activities” and the horizontal structure of the organisation: everything, from the courses and talks to the cooking will be done by and for young physicists, and we will encourage each participant to actively engage in shaping the structure of l’Agape. Furthermore, this year we are offering participants the possibility to stay for three more days after the official end to continue the discussions and enjoy the surroundings.

You will find more details in the poster attached and on the website agape2019.sciencesconf.org.

Please forward this message to anyone who might be interested!

Best wishes,

The organisers:

Dear Relativists,

It is a great pleasure to invite you to the 22nd International Conference on General Relativity and Gravitation (GR22) and the 13th Amaldi Conference on Gravitational Waves (Amaldi13) which takes place from 7th – 12th July 2019 at the University of Valencia, Spain.

Registration is now open!

http://www.gr22amaldi13.com/register.php

GR22 is the latest in the series of triennial international conferences held under the auspices of the International Society on General Relativity and Gravitation. This conference series constitutes the principal international meetings for scientists working in all areas of relativity and gravitation.

The Amaldi conferences are held under the auspices of the Gravitational Wave International Committee. Since 1997, they have been held every two years and are regarded as the most important international conferences for the gravitational-wave detection community. In Valencia, GR22 and Amaldi13 are organized as a joint event.

The program of the conference, among many topics, includes a celebration of the Eddington expedition, the status of analogue experiments, tests on the nature of compact objects, superradiance and dark matter in strong-field gravity, progress in post-Newtonian expansions and effective field theory methods, progress in mathematical relativity, Numerical Relativity and its applications to astrophysics and high-energy physics, neutron stars, formation of supermassive black holes, Loop Quantum Gravity, the Event Horizon Telescope, the galactic center black hole, holography and quantum information, post-Planck cosmology, the LIGO-Virgo detections and multi-messenger astronomy, as well as the future of gravitational-wave detectors.

The program will also include a public talk on gravitational waves, an award ceremony for the IUPAP Young Scientist Prize, and a tribute to Stephen Hawking.

The conference venue is the Valencia Conference Centre (2010 World’s Best Convention Centre) designed by internationally renowned architect Norman Foster. Public transportation access is straightforward from all parts of the city by either bus, metro, or tram, or even using the environmentally friendly bicycles of Valenbisi. The venue is only ten minutes away from the city’s airport and from the high-speed train station, and it is surrounded by hotels, with circa 1,000 hotel rooms within two minutes’ walking distance. The venue is well connected with the Old Town where the visitor can enjoy a large monumental heritage comprising buildings dating to Roman and Arabic times and UNESCO heritage sites.

We look forward to welcoming you to Valencia 2019!

Dear all,

We are pleased to announce the COSMO'19 conference, to be held at RWTH Aachen University, Germany, from Monday 2nd of September, 9am, to Friday 6th of September, 1pm. As in previous editions, the conference will address hot topics in cosmology and astroparticle physics. There will be plenary sessions every morning, parallel sessions every afternoon, and two poster sessions in the evenings. It will be a family-friendly conference, we have set up a childcare service during lecturing times. Our list of confirmed plenary speakers includes Yacine Ali-Haïmoud, Iason Baldes, Erminia Calabrese, Emanuele Castorina, Chihway Chang, David Curtin, Valerie Domcke, Lavinia Heisenberg, Yonit Hochberg, Will Kinney, Lloyd Knox, Sachiko Kuroyanagi, Mariangela Lisanti, Vivian Poulin, Alkistis Pourtsidou, Pat Scott, Matteo Viel, Walter Winter, Gong-Bo Zhao, Miguel Zumalacarregui. There will be six parallel sessions coordinated by the following conveners:

• Early Universe: Subodh Patil, Lorenzo Sorbo

• Gravitational Waves and Black Holes: Daniel Figueroa, Teruaki Suyama

• Dark Matter and Astroparticle: Marco Cirelli, Francis-Yann Cyr-Racine

• CMB, universe expansion and thermal history: Vera Gluscevic, Antony Lewis

• Large Scale Structure: Dragan Huterer, Elena Sellentin

• Modified Gravity and Dark Energy: Claudia De Rahm, Alessandra Silvestri

Aachen was the former capital of Charlemagne’s empire. It is a cute middle-sized touristic city, with monuments dating back from that time. Accommodation and food are rather cheap, and we have done some block-bookings to be sure that everybody can get a hotel room in due time (details will be circulated later). Aachen is easy to reach by train from several international airports: Cologne/Bonn, Dusseldorf, Frankfurt, Brussels (one to two hours). There are direct train connections to many major German cities, as well as Brussels (one hour) and Paris (two hours and a half by Thalys).

Please book the date in your agenda. Registration and abstract submission (for 90 parallel talks and 120 posters) will be open over spring, when we will circulate the second bulletin. The exact fees amount will be announced later, and will not exceed those of former editions. We will propose several activities after the main sessions: on Monday, a welcome reception; on Tuesday, a choice between several social and cultural activities (visits, excursions, games); on Wednesday, a banquet, and on Thursday, a public outreach lecture by Eiichiro Komatsu.

More details can be found on our webpage:

Understanding Cosmological Observations, Jul 28 -- Aug 09 2019, Benasque, Spain.



Plenary Speakers: Daniel Baumann, Kfir Blum, Camille Bonvin, Cora Dvorkin, Stephen Feeney, Shirley Ho, Julien Lesgourgues, Samaya Nissanke, Blake Sherwin, Tracy Slatyer, Anze Slosar, Sherry Suyu.



A new wave of data is arriving from large-scale structure observations and high-sensitivity CMB polarization measurements. This workshop will focus on the data and theoretical modelling required to robustly understand the new observations as non-linear and foreground physics becomes increasingly important, and on the range of theoretical models that could explain the data and be empirically tested in the next decade.





The meeting takes place in a particularly beautiful and inspiring atmosphere below the peak of Aneto, the highest point in the Pyrenees. The program will consist mainly of a few lectures and discussion sessions, leaving plenty of time in the afternoon for interactions and research, as well as for mountain hiking. There will be plenty of opportunity for people to organise more specialized discussions where they can also present contributed talks.





In the evening, the village offers a warm and relaxing atmosphere with good and mostly inexpensive bars and restaurants. The Centre is equipped with facilities such as library, wifi, blackboards, discussion rooms and coffee lounges. Participants will get a desk in a shared office. All participants will be accommodated in hotel rooms or in nice apartments managed by the Conference center (1, 2 or 3 bedroom apartments available, for prices ranging approximately from about 400 to 700 euros/week , which can be shared between participants). There will be a registration fee (by default 250 euros for the two weeks, including bus transfer from Barcelona, reception and coffee breaks), but we may be able to subsidise a small number on request. Please note that the number of participants is limited, so unfortunately we usually cannot accept everyone who would like to come. We ask interested participants to (pre)register now, but payments will only be due after final confirmation of places, which will be done after May 20th, 2019:

We are pleased to announce that the 30th Texas Symposium on Relativistic Astrophysics will take place from Sunday 15th to Friday 20th December 2019 in Portsmouth, UK.

The Texas meetings have covered topics such as black holes, gravitational waves, neutron stars, cosmic rays, dark matter and the early Universe since the first symposium, held in Dallas in 1963. The Symposium will include both invited and contributed talks and posters.

The 2019 meeting will be hosted by the University of Portsmouth’s Institute of Cosmology and Gravitation.

Conference information will be posted on the symposium website http://texas2019.org, where you can sign up for future announcements.

For any queries please contact the organisers at texas2019[AT]port.ac.uk

We look forward to welcoming you to Portsmouth,

Marco Bruni and David Wands
