6th Gulf Coast Gravity Meeting
The 6th Gulf Coast Gravity Meeting will be held May 15-16, 2011,
Atlantic University in Boca Raton, Florida. Researchers in all areas
of gravitational physics, including numerical, experimental, classical
and quantum gravity, as well as related astrophysics and cosmology,
are welcome to attend. This is an informal regional meeting, and most
participants will be from the Gulf Coast area of the United States,
but all outside of this region who wish to attend are more than
welcome. A prize of $200 (sponsored by the APS Topical Group on
Gravity) will be awarded for the best talk given by a student at the
meeting. This meeting is sponsored by the Oak Ridge
Associated Universities (ORAU). Through funds
provided by ORAU, we are additionally able to
offer support for student travel.
The registration simply consists in sending an email to

Please indicate in the email whether the participant is a student.
