International Society for Quantum Gravity

About Us

Our Mission

To promote the study of Quantum Gravity in all its aspects (mathematical, physical and conceptual), to nurture diverse research directions and to exchange information in the interest of its members and the profession.


The society has been set up with a founding committee* representing the diverse approaches to quantum gravity.

* The intention is to eventually replace this with a formal committee governed by by-laws (which are currently being formulated).

Founding Committee members:

  • Jan de Boer
  • Bianca Dittrich (co Chair)
  • Antonio Duarte Pereira (Website)
  • Astrid Eichhorn
  • Steve Giddings

  • Kyriakos Papadodimas
  • Mairi Sakellariadou
  • Sumati Surya (Website)
