The Rencontres de Moriond and GRAM Colloquium on Gravitation will review the subject 2 years after the last edition and more specifically after the discovery of gravitational waves, after the successful launches of LISAPathFinder and MICROSCOPE, after the first GAIA data release etc ...
The main topics of the conference are:
  • Gravitational waves: sources, searches and observations
  • Space borne detectors
  • Strong field tests of General Relativity (Pulsars, Black holes,...)
  • Quantum sensors
  • Pulsar timing
  • 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 theories
  • 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
