The 28th Midwest Relativity Meeting will be held Friday and Saturday, 12-13 October 2018 at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. Each participant in the meetings may present a talk of approximately 10-15 minutes, depending on the total number of talks. We intend the Midwest Relativity Meeting to cover a broad range of topics in gravitational physics, including classical and quantum gravity, numerical relativity, relativistic astrophysics, cosmology, gravitational waves and experimental gravity.

The MWRM will be preceded by a symposium in honor of David Garfinkle's 60th birthday on Thursday afternoon 11 October 2018. Speakers will include Beverly Berger, Gary Horowitz, Frans Pretorius, Bob Wald, Luis Lehner and David himself.
