The 26th Texas Symposium on Relativistic Astrophysics will be held in Sao Paulo city, Brazil, from December 15-20, 2012, hosted by National Institute for Space Research (INPE). The Symposium will be held at Hotel Bourbon Convention Ibirapuera (http://www.bourbon.com.br/en/hotel).
As in the previous editions of the Texas Symposium, Texas 2012 will cover recent developments in Cosmology, Gravitation, Astroparticle Physics and related areas of Relativistic Astrophysics with emphasis on the most recent developments in the field.
Because of the proximity to Christmas, we anticipated the symposium in one day. So, it starts on Sunday (December 16) and ends on Thursday (December 20) in the middle of the afternoon, allowing people to travel already that evening (on December 20).
There will be a cocktail of reception Saturday, on December 15. Therefore, if you arrive in Sao Paulo on December 15 during the day and leave on December 20 at night you won’t be missing anything.
