The third Advances in Quantum Gravity conference is underway, at the Pacific Science Institute, Maui. So far, there have been illuminating talks by Cohl Furey, Garrett Lisi and Alessio Marrani. There seems to be glimmers of higher gauge theory in the air, with an infinite ascent into an ultimate motivic correspondence.

An ultra-diffuse galaxy (UDG) called Dragonfly 44 was observed by the Keck II telescope, consisting mostly of dark matter. It is roughly the size of our Milky Way galaxy and certainly not fully described by the standard model of particle physics. What could such a dark galaxy be made of? Cast your votes.

Beginning next week, Advances in Quantum Gravity 2015 (AQG 2015) will begin. Some of the most innovative young theorists in the world will gather to discuss the latest research in quantum gravity and unified field theory. The conference is invitation only, with participants sharing the latest ideas from all major approaches to quantum gravity, in a formalism independent setting.
