NARDA 2014, Fullerton

The 2014 Numerical and Analytical Relativity and Data Analysis (NARDA) Meeting will take place at California State University, Fullerton on August 21, 2014 – Friday, August 22, 2014.

The purpose of this meeting is to bring together numerical relativists, analytic relativists, and gravitational-wave astronomers to discuss progress and challenges in gravitational-wave source modeling and data analysis in the advanced detector era.

While there is no fee for the meeting, we ask that participants register so that we can allocate limited space for contributed talks.

For more information, including travel, lodging, and registration, please see the meeting web page at

Please email any questions to the organizers (glovelace at fullerton dot edu or jread at fullerton dot edu).

Numerical Relativity and Data Analysis Meeting 2013, Mallorca, Spain

Numerical Relativity and Data Analysis Meeting
18-21 September, 2013, Club Pollentia Resort, Mallorca, Spain

The next Numerical Relativity and Data Analysis Meeting (NRDA) will be held at the Club Pollentia Resort, Mallorca, Spain, from 18-21 September 2013, and hosted by the Gravitational Physics Group at the University of the Balearic Islands.

The purpose of the meeting will be to bring together numerical relativists, gravitational wave data analysts, analytical relativists and a wider gravitational wave physics audience to advance the interface of numerical simulations of the Einstein equations with gravitational wave observations.

The meeting program will start on September 18 in the morning, and conclude with lunch on September 21.
Participants traveling to the LVC meeting will find several daily direct flights to Hannover available.

For further information on the meeting see the website

The meeting will be held at a four-star resort located in a nature reserve on the coast of Mallorca. A block of 50 rooms has been reserved on an all inclusive board basis until ** May 28th **, afterwards we cannot guarantee hotel reservation or price. Cancellations before Sep 10, 2013 do not incur a cancellation fee [in case of last minute cancellations our travel agent will try to negotiate a full or partial waiver of standard hotel cancellation fees].

Note that there is no alternative accommodation available in the immediate vicinity – accommodation should therefore be booked ** before May 28 ** (further hotels are however available within a few km radius).

Amaldi/NRDA Conference: upcoming deadlines

Amaldi/NRDA early registration deadline extension: June 2

The early registration deadline for the 9th Edoardo Amaldi Conference and Numerical Relativity – Data Analysis workshop (Cardiff, 10-15 July 2011) has been extended to the end of Thursday June 2cd (UK time). To qualify for the reduced registration fee, payment should be paid by that time.

Other upcoming deadlines are abstract submission (10 June), and late registration is (17 June).

Please note that recent network difficulties at Cardiff University have required us to change the IP address for the conference website. If you have access difficulties with the standard URL ( then you can access the website directly here:

Please contact amaldi[AT] for more information.

We look forward to seeing you in Cardiff.

2011 Numerical Relativity – Data Analysis (NRDA) meeting

The 2011 Numerical Relativity – Data Analysis (NRDA) meeting will be held in Cardiff from July 10-12. The NRDA meetings bring together numerical relativists who simulate sources of gravitational radiation, and data analysts who search for these signals in gravitational-wave detector data.

This years’ meeting will be held in conjunction with the 9th Edoardo Amaldi Conference on Gravitational Waves, which will run from July 11-15. Registration will open soon, with options for registration to either NRDA (Sunday to Tuesday), Amaldi (Monday to Friday) or both meetings (Sunday to Friday). More information can be found at .

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

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
