OVERVIEW


The Rencontres de Moriond and GRAM Colloquium on Gravitation will review the subject 4 years after the last edition.
The main topics of the conference are:
  • Astrophysical and cosmological sources of Gravitational Waves
  • Search for gravitational wave events (transient, continuous and stochastic background)
  • Status of present and advanced gravitational waves detectors
  • Space borne detectors
  • Strong field tests of General Relativity (Pulsars, Black holes,...)
  • Quantum sensors for gravitational waves and fundamental physics
  • Fundamental physics with gravitational waves
  • Tests of the equivalence principle
  • Astrometry, solar system ephemerides and observational gravity tests
  • Space geodesy, Earth and Planetary Gravity, Navigation
  • Clocks, lasers and fundamental constants
  • Tests of GR and alternative theories (CPT and Lorentz violation, modified gravity,...)
  • Short range gravity and Casimir effect: classical, atom and neutron tests
  • Long range gravity, dark matter, dark energy
The conference will include both review and contributed talks and will be organized only in plenary sessions
