Workshop on Continuum and Lattice Approaches to Quantum Gravity

CLAQG08
17-19 September 2008
University of Sussex, United Kingdom
The recent years have seen substantial progress in the understanding of quantum gravity as a local quantum theory of the metric field, despite its perturbative non-renormalisability. Interesting results have been achieved based on non-perturbative renormalisation group studies in the continuum, numerical simulations on the lattice, and new ideas within perturbation theory. This Workshop will gather the leading scientists in these fields to share their expertise, evaluate results and phenomenological implications, and stimulate further studies relating these approaches and neighbouring ones.
The Workshop is preceeded by a 2-day School on Non-Perturbative Methods in Quantum Field Theory "From Quantum Chromodynamics to Quantum Gravitation", for advanced PhD students and junior postdocs.
