MRST 2002 is the 24th in an ongoing series of annual meetings that brings together an international group of researchers clustered around the Universities of Montreal/McGill, Rochester, Syracuse, and Toronto working on various aspects of theoretical high energy physics. This year features disussions on a wider than usual scope of interrelated topics, with invited talks ranging from the latest developments in cosmic microwave background radiation research and the solar neutrino puzzle to the Bekenstein bound in quantum gravity and the AdS/CFT conjecture in string theory. The main purpose is to encourage increased interaction between traditionally separate but clearly overlapping research sub-disciplines. This was the first conference to be hosted by the new Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics, and was held in memory of George Leibbrandt, who played a vital role in all aspects of the founding of the Institute and served on its Board of Directors. Readership: Academics and researchers in theoretical physics.
