General Relativity @ 99, Bad Honnef, Germany
General relativity (GR) is coming of age. The year 2015 will be its 100th anniversary. Just on the eve of this anniversary, the school aims at teaching GR with specific emphasis on its physical and astrophysical implications. The school is intended for graduate students in physics and astrophysics as well as for postdocs and scientists with some background in GR and astrophysics who are looking for more advanced treatments of the current problems in GR.
Physikzentrum Bad Honnef, is a delightful venue, housed in a 19th century mansion on the Rhine river just south of Bonn and Cologne. Posters by the participants are welcome and discussions with the lecturers will be encouraged.
