The 31st annual Midwest Relativity Meeting will be hosted by the Astrophysics group, ICASU, and the Department of Physics of the University of Illinois in Urbana-Champaign from November 11 - 13, 2021 Thursday to Saturday in room 204 Loomis Laboratory.

The Midwest Relativity Meetings aim to bring together researchers from across the Midwest and beyond to discuss General Relativity and a broad range of topics in gravitational physics, including classical and quantum gravity, numerical relativity, relativistic astrophysics, cosmology, gravitational waves, experimental gravity, and other related topics.

Congratulations to the 2021 Blue Apple Prize winner,
Daine Danielson!

As was in the past, talks will consist of short contributed papers in an informal atmosphere. Each participant may present a talk of ~11 minutes (10 minute talks with 1 minute for questions). Professors, post-docs, graduate students, and undergraduates working on relevant topics are encouraged to present their work. The 2021 Blue Apple Prize will be awarded to the best graduate student speaker.

There is no registration fee. The deadline for abstract submission is October 1, 2021. Registration to attend the meeting is open until November 1, 2021. Access to both forms is available through the 'Registration' tab. This meeting will be offered in hybrid, with a really large room available for in-person attendees.  As per the UIUC and the state of Illinois requirements, all in-person attendees are required to wear masks and be vaccinated.

We look forward to seeing you at the 2021 Midwest Relativity meeting!
