List of participants

Scientific program

Campus and off-campus food guides are now available in the Accomodation and travel section.

The meeting's scientific program is now available. Last update: October 28.

Participants should be aware that this edition of the Midwest meeting is much larger than those of the recent past. The schedule of talks is very full, and very tight. Request for scheduling changes will not be considered.

All sessions will take place in Peter Clark Hall, situated in the basement of the University Centre of the University of Guelph.

Wireless access will be granted to all registered participants. Password information will be provided on each name tag. A signature will be requested at registration on Friday morning.

A welcoming reception will take place on Friday evening (6pm), in the New Science Complex of the University of Guelph.

A MacBook Pro computer running Mac OS X v10.6 will be provided during the meeting. The computer is equipped with Microsoft PowerPoint 2008 for Mac, Keynote 2009, and Adobe Acrobat 9 Pro. Speakers are strongly encouraged to prepare PDF versions of their talks, and to upload them onto the computer prior to delivering their talk (during a coffee break or lunch). Speakers who insist on using their own computer do so at their own risk; setup time will be subtracted from the total time alloted to the talk.

The 20th annual Midwest Relativity Meeting will be held at the University of Guelph and hosted by the Department of Physics.

The local organizers are Luis Lehner, Eric Poisson, Marc Casals, and Ian Vega.

The format of the meeting will be as in past Midwest Relativity Meetings. Each participant may present a talk of approximately 15 minutes, depending on the total number of talks. Registration and abstract submission are now open, and they will close on 15 October 2010. Abstracts submitted after this date may still be considered, but no guarantee can be given. Undergraduates, graduate students and post-doctoral follows are especially encouraged to make presentations.

The Blue Apple Award, sponsored by the APS Topical Group in Gravitation, will be presented for the best talk by a graduate student.

The 20th annual Midwest Relativity Meeting is sponsored by the Provost and Vice President (Academic), Vice President (Research), Dean of Arts, Dean of Biological Science, Dean of Physical and Engineering Science, and the Department of Physics of the University of Guelph.
