Unifying Quantum Field Theory and Gravity (the latter being formulated through Einstein's General Relativity) has become a great challenge, which calls for a quantum theory of space-time itself. Several approaches have revealed recently in order to solve this problem : string theory, loop quantum gravity, causal dynamical triangulation, causal sets, noncommutative geometry,... This meeting aims at facilitating exchange of information around these different points of view.
