Observing Black Holes: From the Universe to the Lab, London UK

IOP Gravitational Physics Group September Meeting
“Observing Black Holes: From the Universe to the Lab”

Friday, 15 September 2017, 12:00 – 17:00
Ayrton and Franklin Rooms, Institute of Physics, 76 Portland Place, London W1B 1NT, UK

This half-day meeting of the IOP Gravitational Physics Group is focused on recent observational developments of black holes. The meeting will be comprised of three speakers discussing the following topics:

Gravitational Wave Observations – John Veitch (University of Glasgow)
Imaging a Supermassive Black Hole – Jason Dexter (Max Planck Institute for Extraterrestrial Physics)
Observation of Superradiance in a Vortex Flow – Silke Weinfurtner (University of Nottingham)

All are welcome to attend and no registration fee will be charged. The talks will be preceded by the IOP Gravitational Physics Group annual general meeting.

NRDA09/MICRA09 Double special issue published in Classical and Quantum Gravity

I am delighted to announce the publication of the following double special issue in Classical and Quantum Gravity:

Invited papers from Numerical Relativity and Data Analysis (NRDA) 2009,
Albert Einstein Institute, Potsdam, 6 – 9 July, 2009
Guest Editors: S Husa and B Krishnan

Invited papers from Microphysics In Computational Relativistic Astrophysics (MICRA) 2009,
Niels Bohr International Academy, Copenhagen, 24 – 28 August 2009
Guest Editors: C D Ott, C Pethick and L Rezzolla

The NRDA meeting was aimed at fostering closer interactions between simulations of gravitational wave sources and the ongoing searches for gravitational wave signals.

The MICRA meeting brought together researchers in numerical modeling and physics of matter at high densities, where general relativity plays a central role.

I take this opportunity to thank all of the authors, referees and guest editors who gave their time and expertise to create this excellent issue.

The special issue will be free for 6 months from date of publication. I invite you to read the articles on the new IOPscience service!

Yours sincerely,

Adam Day
