CLAQG08

17-19 September 2008

University of Sussex, United Kingdom

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.
