Workshop Quantum Gravity in Paris­­­ Quantum LPT, Orsay - 17-21 mars 2014

The workshop "Quantum Gravity in Paris 2014" is the fourth in a regular series that aims at stimulating exchanges between different approaches to quantum gravity in all its aspects.

This year’s emphasis is on the fundamental definition of the theory and its mathematical aspects, rather than physical applications.
