Welcome to the LOOPS'17 Conference webpage.


The conference will be held from 03 July to 07 July 2017,
at the Faculty of Physics of University of Warsaw,
Warsaw, Poland.


 

The Loops'17 conference will highlight recent developments and new research directions in loop quantum gravity and other background independent approaches to the problem of quantum gravity.

A nonexhaustive list of topics of the conference includes:

  • Canonical loop quantum gravity
  • Covariant LQG (spin foams)
  • Symmetry-reduced models
  • Quantum cosmology
  • Black holes in quantum gravity
  • Quantum gravity phenomenology
  • Foundational and mathematical aspects


Although the conference is focused on non-perturbative approaches to quantum gravity, experts from other fields of quantum gravity research are also encouraged to participate.

Loops'17 is the most recent conference in a long tradition of meetings focused on loop quantum gravity, which have recently been organized approximately once every two years. The previous conferences in the series were:

  • 1997: Banach Center of Mathematics, Warsaw, Poland: Workshop on Canonical & Quantum Gravity II, 26 May - 6 June, 1997.
  • 2001: Banach Center of Mathematics, Warsaw, Poland: Workshop on Canonical & Quantum Gravity III, 7-19 June, 2001.
  • 2004: CPT Marseille, France: Non Perturbative Quantum Gravity: Loops and Spin Foams, 3-7 May 2004.
