Location:  Waterloo, Canada

This is a second announcement for “The 24th Capra meeting on Radiation Reaction in General Relativity”, which will be held virtually via Perimeter Institute from June 7-11, 2021.

Registration for this event closes on Friday May 21. Abstract’s submission will also close on this date.

The Capra meeting is an annual workshop on the topic of radiation reaction in general relativity. The primary focus of these workshops is the development of self-force techniques to model extreme mass ratio inspirals and further our understanding of the two-body problem in General Relativity.

This proposed format of this week-long conference will consist of one review talk each day (approximately 40 minutes), several contributed talks (approximately 15-20 minutes) daily, and one discussion session (approximately 60-100 minutes) daily. The format might vary somewhat depending on the number of online submissions. Confirmed invited speakers include Bernard Whiting, Katie Breivik, Maarten van de Meent, and Eva Hackmann among others.

For the first time, there will also be an invited talk on equity, diversity and inclusion (EDI) – please note the EDI tab on the website for more information from the Capra EDI Team,

At Capra, we provide equal opportunities regardless of gender, age, race, disability, ethnic origin, religion, sexual orientation, socio-economic status, civil status, or family status. We urge all those with an interest in research on self-force and extreme mass-ratio inspirals to register for this meeting and submit an abstract for a presentation. Past and current attendees should encourage a broad spectrum of their colleagues to apply.

We hope that you will be able to join us at this exciting event and look forward to seeing you online in June 2021!
