Workshop on Gravity: classical, quantum, theoretical and experimental

Department of Physics & Astronomy, Louisiana State University

March 17-18, 2023

The workshop is organized by the Department of Physics & Astronomy at LSU and the Hearne Institute to profess Dr. Jorge Pullin's distinctive career. Jorge Pullin is Horace Hearne Chair with the Department of Physics & Astronomy and a faculty at Center for Computation and Technology at Louisiana State University. The workshop will bring together various collaborators and colleagues of Jorge from different areas of classical, quantum and numerical aspects of gravity. During his long and dynamical career, Jorge has published more than 200 research papers and 3 books on loop quantum gravity and has worked in all areas of gravitational physics including classical and quantum aspects, theoretical and experimental elements, foundational aspects of quantum theory and numerical relativity. Jorge's exemplary service to the community includes being the founding editor of Physical Review X, managing editor of International Journal of Modern Physics D, and editorial board of Living Reviews in Relativity, and starting International Loop Quantum Gravity seminars which have been run regularly by Jorge since 2006. He has been awarded various honors including the Fellow of American Physical Society and the American Association of Advancement of Science.

The conference will be held in 130 Nicholson Hall at the Department of Physics & Astronomy at LSU. To attend the conference please register by sending an email to Param Singh. There is no registration fee.
