3rd Quantum Gravity and Quantum Geometry School

QGQGS 2011
February 28 - March 13, 2011
Zakopane, Poland
The purpose of the school is to provide current PhD students, potdocs and other researchers with an up-to-date introduction to the main research topics of the network: loop quantum gravity, spin foam models, matrix models, and the application of non-commutative geometry and quantum groups to quantum gravity as well as more recent developments like group field theory. The emphasize will be on progress made during the four years of the ESF network program Quantum geometry and Quantum Gravity.

Editorial Board: John Barrett, Kristina Giesel, Frank Hellmann (Chairman), Larisa Jonke, Thomas Krajewski, Jerzy Lewandowski, Carlo Rovelli, Hanno Sahlmann, Harold Steinacker.
