Location:  Jena, Germany

We are pleased to announce the Workshop on Unstructured Meshes in Dynamical Spacetimes in Jena, Germany on 25-27 August 2010.

This workshop on the use of unstructured meshes in numerical relativity has been devised as a means to bring together experts in numerical relativity, finite elements, finite volumes, discrete differential forms, and Regge calculus to encourage discussion between the communities and identify areas in which new progress can be made.

Topics for talks and discussions will be aimed at
-Finite element methods in numerical relativity
-Dynamical space-time meshing
-Applications for finite-volume methods
-Higher order geometric discretizations of Einstein’s equations
-Numerical methods based on Regge calculus
-Advances in discrete differential forms.

Registration is currently open, and we are accepting contributed talks. The deadline for submission of abstracts is 31 July 2010.
