CAPRA and NRDA 2010 (2nd announcement)

CAPRA & NRDA 2010: Theory Meets Data Analysis at Comparable and Extreme Mass Ratios

(Second Circular)

Please note registration is now open at:

The webpage includes (partial) information of speakers and a link to register and submit a possible contributed talk. The site will be updated shortly with the final list of speakers together with accommodations info.

Please register as soon as possible so as to have an approximate head-count and to firm up the schedule of contributed talks. Notice that the deadline for submission of abstracts is Saturday, March 20, 2010. After this date, approval will depend on availability. Last, note this conference joins two traditionally distinct but related ones: CAPRA and NRDA. The schedule will be such that June 20, 21, 22 will concentrate on the CAPRA theme. June 23rd a “bridge” date between the two communities and June 24, 25, 26 will focus on the NRDA side.

CAPRA and NRDA 2010

This is the first announcement about the 2010 CAPRA and NRDA meetings that will take place at the Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics, Waterloo, Ontario, Canada on June 20-26, 2010.

The first three days will be devoted to CAPRA, the last three days on NRDA with a day in between to foster interactions between both communities. In keeping with the meetings traditions: CAPRA will focus on the radiation reaction problem in general relativity in the broad sense. NRDA will continue fostering collaborations between numerical relativity and gravitational wave searches. Both meetings will have invited and contributed talks and leave ample space for discussions and collaborations. Additionally, having both meetings be back-to-back at the same location would provide for interactions at the interface between the involved communities.

A Scientific Organizing Committee is being formed and will be announced shortly. A web page has been set up at:

which will be updated periodically as time approaches.

Please mark this meeting in your calendars, we look forward to meeting you in Waterloo.

Best regards
