GARYFEST: Gravitation, Solitons and Symmetries

Deadline for registration: 15/03/2017

This focused conference celebrates Gary Gibbons' remarkable contributions and continuing influence in diverse fields of contemporary physics including gravity, the theory of solitons and classical and quantum symmetries. The meeting will focus on current developments in these fields.
