Exploring New Horizons with Gravitational Waves, Hannover

“Exploring New Horizons with Gravitational Waves”: a one-day intensive workshop on testing General Relativity on Black Hole Horizons with Gravitational Waves.

Albert Einstein Institute, Max Planck Institute for Gravitational
Physics, Hannover and Leibniz Universität, Hannover, Germany

Friday, June 8, 2012

The scientific objective of the workshop is to bring together researchers in gravitational theory, numerical relativity and relativistic astrophysics to brainstorm on strategies for using LIGO/Virgo gravitational-wave detectors to test General Relativity in the strong field regime near black hole horizons.

For further information and the registration form please see the following website:

Participants are encouraged to give short (~15 min) contributed talks. If you would like to give a contributed talk please submit your title and abstract on the web-site when registering for the workshop.

Looking forward to seeing you all in Hannover.
