Geometric Foundations of Gravity in Tartu is a conference dedicated to the geometric foundations of gravity theories that will take place August 28 - September 1, 2017 in Tartu, Estonia. The aim of this conference is to gather experts on various alternative and modified approaches to gravity, as well as observations.
The main topics include:
- Gauge theories of gravity (Poincare, teleparallel, ...)
- Scalar/vector/tensor extensions of general realtivity (f(R) gravity, scalar-tensor and multiscalar-tensor, Horndeski and beyond, generalized Proca, massive gravity and bimetric theories, ...)
- Beyond Lorentzian geometry (Finsler geometry, modified dispersion relations, ...)
- Observational evidence for general relativity and beyond
The conference is organized by the Laboratory of Theoretical Physics, University of Tartu.
