A Quantum Gravity summer school will be held at
the Institute for Mathematics of the National Autonomous University Of Mexico
(UNAM) in Morelia, Mexico June 23-July 3, 2010. Lectures at the school
will describe current research in several approaches to quantum gravity, including
string theory, loop gravity, and causal dynamical triangulations.
Lectures will be appropriate for advanced Ph.D students are beginning postdocs.
The goal of the school is to bring together researchers from these different approaches
from throughout the Americas.
The location and timing of our school have been chosen to synergize with the
19th International Conference on General Relativity and
Gravitation (GR19), to be held July 5-9, 2010 in Mexico City.
