20th Capra Meeting on Radiation Reaction in General Relativity, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (1st announcement)
The 20th Capra Meeting on Radiation Reaction in General Relativity will be held at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. The meeting will run from the 19th to 23rd of June, 2017, starting with three to four days of invited and contributed talks and followed by one to two days of informal discussions.
As usual the program will focus on aspects of the self-force in general relativity, but will also seek to explore connections to other approaches to the two-body problem. Following the Capra tradition, the meeting will be informal. There will be no registration fee and no proceedings. The program will include a few invited review talks, short contributed presentations (20 to 30 minutes), and open discussions. Contributed talks on all aspects of the radiation reaction problem (including related topics such as EMRI astrophysics or data analysis) are welcome.
Registration, lodging, and travel information will follow in a second announcement.
The meeting will be partially supported by the CoSMS Institute.
