Participation is encouraged by researchers *especially students* in all areas of gravitational physics, including classical, quantum, theory, observation, computation and experiment. Since this is a regional meeting, most participants are expected to be from the Northeastern United States and Eastern Canada, but all are welcome.
    An extra day of conference will be dedicated to invited presentations on the future of Gravitational research: Beyond the First Century of General Relativity.
