Dear (aspiring) numerical relativists,

Applications are now open for the first NR community summer school, Aug 8-12, 2022, at ICERM, Brown University, US.

This one-week summer school brings together early career researchers (graduate students and postdocs) interested in learning the state-of-the-art in numerical relativity, from the basics to advanced topics. Our preliminary program is:
– Intro and advanced NR (Helvi Witek and Katy Clough)
– Relativistic hydrodynamics (Elias Most)
– Gravitational waves (Deirdre Shoemaker)
– High-performance computing (Eloisa Bentivegna)
– Hackathon
– Evening talks, side program, NR community codes hands-on sessions

No prior exposure to numerical relativity is required, though basic familiarity with computational physics and general relativity would be desirable.
The school is planned as an in-person event with streaming options available for the lecture program. ICERM will be able to offer limited funding for some participants.

Applications are open now on this web page attached to this post

Even if you are planning to participate online, please register and indicate so in your application. We particularly encourage applications from participants from diverse backgrounds and underrepresented communities.

With warm regards,
The organizing committee,
Nils Vu, Thomas Helfer, Elias Most, Helvi Witek, Scott Field, and Leo Stein
