April 1997 Joint APS/AAPT Meeting

CALL FOR PAPERS (0th announcement):

The 1997 Joint American Physical Society/American Association of Physics Teachers Meeting will be held April 18-21 1997 in Washington, DC. This meeting will feature invited sessions sponsored by the Topical Group in Gravitation (GTG) as well as the GTG annual business meeting. The Ligo Research Community will also hold its meeting here. This year the GTG will organize approximately two focus sessions with invited and contributed talks on specific topics of interest to the GTG membership. The details of the focus sessions will be made available as soon as possible on the APS Meetings and GTG Web pages:
http://www.aps.org/meet/meetcal.html
http://vishnu.nirvana.phys.psu.edu/tig/

Contributed papers are also welcomed from MOG readers on (1) experiments and observations related to the detection and interpretation of gravitational waves, (2) experimental tests of gravitational theories, (3) computational general relativity, (4) relativistic astrophysics, (5) theories of the gravitational field, solutions to the field equations, and properties of solutions, (6) classical and quantum cosmology, and (7) quantum gravity.

The abstract deadline (see http://www.aps.org/meet/meetcal.html) is not yet posted but will probably be around the end of the year. To submit an abstract, APS but not GTG membership is required (an APS member may submit an abstract for a non-member).
