The 34th Pacific Coast Gravity Meeting will be held at the California Institute of Technology in Pasadena, CA, on March 16 and 17, 2018. In keeping with its tradition, this will be an open, relaxed, and informal conference. We are inviting researchers and students interested in all areas of gravitational physics: classical and quantum gravity, general relativistic astrophysics and cosmology, quantum cosmology, gravitational waves, and experimental gravity. Because this is a regional meeting, many attendees will be from the western United States, but all are welcome.
Following the usual tradition all participants, and especially postdocs and graduate students, are encouraged to contribute short, introductory talks on their current research, with the aim of fostering communication and understanding among gravitational physicists with different backgrounds. A prize (sponsored by the APS Division of Gravitational Physics) will be awarded for the best talk given by a student at the meeting.
Prospective speakers should register by February 18 to receive full consideration. Late applicants will be considered at the discretion of the organizers. A block of rooms has been reserved at a nearby hotel. Reserve your room by February 15 to receive a reduced rate. See the website for details: http://www.tapir.caltech.edu/~pcgm34/.
