Organizers: Hakan Andreasson (Gothenburg), David Fajman (Vienna), Jeremie Joudioux (Potsdam), Todd Oliynyk (Monash).

We would like to announce the program “Mathematical perspectives of gravitation beyond the vacuum regime” to be held from Feb. 01, 2021, to March 15, 2021, at the Erwin Schroedinger International Institute for Mathematics and Physics in Vienna, Austria. This program is the sequel of the workshop organized at the ESI in 2017 on Vlasov matter. The focus is on self-gravitating matter models that include kinetic, fluid, elastic and field theoretical models. The main aim of the program is to drive progress by connecting researchers working on different matter models in general relativity and in Newtonian gravity, and by advertising open problems that can serve as an entry point for researchers from other areas. For further information, see the website.

Over the course of the program, two main events will take place:

1 A spring school (Feb. 15-19, 2021) on matter models in relativity. Lectures on the Einstein-Vlasov system, on the relativistic Vlasov-Maxwell system, on relativistic fluids, and on elasticity will be offered.

2 A workshop (Feb. 22-26, 2021) on recent advances in the field.

*Please note that attendance is limited at all times to 60 participants. Hence, the attendance to the spring school and the workshop is limited to 60 persons.*

*Limited support is available for the accommodation of students and post-docs.
