Fifth Tux workshop on quantum gravity

Tux in winter

Tux in winter

Monday February 13 to Friday February 17 2017

The workshop brings together experts on canonical and covariant loop quantum gravity and related topics, in the scenic village of Tux, in the Austrian alps. This year, we specifically invite contributions concerning the continuum limit and renormalisation. More general and in particular pedagogical talks on these issues are highly welcome.
Details on the homepage of the workshop. Please register your participation in the workshop as soon as practical, and before Dec 2016.

First Erlangen Workshop on Cosmology and Quantum Gravity

The workshop was held at the FAU-Erlangen-Nürnberg from 9th to 13th of February 2015 and aimed to bring together experts working in cosmology and quantum gravity equally distributed from both research areas. The workshop was comprised of introductory talks of quantum gravity and comsomology with a particular focus on topics interesting for both communities as well as specialized talks and ample time for discussion, to stimulate interaction between the participants.

Christmas Lecture: 2350 Mission To Antares

This years Christmas lecture of the Physics Department was held by the Institute for Quantum Gravity on 11th of December 2014 at 8:15 pm in lecture hall G. More details can be found on the homepage of the Christmas lecture.

Third Erlangen Fall School on Quantum Geometry

The Erlangen Fall Schools on Quantum Geometry are a series of interdisciplinary schools on mathematical physics topics surrounding geometry and quantisation. They address postdocs and PhD students from both subjects and aim to provide an overview as well as an in-depth understanding of current research topics at the interface of mathematics and physics.
The 3rd edition of the shool took place at the Mathematics Department from September 15 to September 18, 2014.
Details can be found on the homepage of the school .

LQP 34 Workshop: Foundations and Constructive Aspects of QFT

The aim of this recurring event is to bring together researchers in the fields of quantum field theory, quantum statistical mechanics, quantum information, non-commutative geometry, quantum gravity and cosmology, and related topics of mathematical physics and mathematics.
The workshop began Friday April 25 at 14:00. It ended Saturday April 26 around 16:00.

Second EFI winter conference on Quantum Gravity: Black Holes and Dynamics

After a successful first meeting in the winter of 2013, the second conference in this series took place Feb 10 to 14, 2014. The aim was to bring together experts on canonical and covariant loop quantum gravity and related topics, in the scenic village of Tux, in the Austrian alps.
Focal topics were the quantum theory of black holes, and dynamics in quantum gravity, but contributions on other topics were also be considered. The schedule of the conference gave ample time for discussion and collaboration.

Second Saufest Run

On 4th of July 2013 the second 5km Saufest Run took place with 19 participants this year. As last year the award for the first three male and female runners was a free food voucher for this year's Saufest. The results of the individual participants can be found here . We are planning to repeat the Saufest Run in July 2014.

First EFI winter conference on canonical and covariant LQG

The conference took place from 25th of February to 1st of March 2013 and aimed to bring together experts on canonical and covariant loop quantum gravity and related topics, in the scenic village of Tux , in the Austrian alps. The schedule of the conference will give ample time for discussion and collaboration. More details can be found here .

(Loop) Quantum Cosmology Compact Course

The Emerging Field Project "Quantum Geometry" organised a compact course on (Loop) Quantum Cosmology (LQC) held by Dr. Ivan Agullo, Prof. Abhay Ashtekar and Dr. William Nelson (Institute for Gravitation and the Cosmos at Pennsylvania State University, PA, USA) at the physics department of the University of Erlangen during June and July 2012. More information as for instance the schedule of the compact course and some slides of given talks can be found here .

First Saufest Run

On 16th of July 2012 the first Saufest Run took place, which was a 5 km race with 30 participants this year.
