Announcement for the 3rd Karl Schwarzschild Meeting

The 3rd Karl Schwarzschild Meeting on Gravitational Physics and the Gauge/Gravity Correspondence will be held in Frankfurt am Main, Germany on 24-28 July 2017. The conference will focus on black holes in astrophysics, quantum gravity, and the gauge/gravity correspondence.


The meeting will bring together both working specialists in the field and rising young researchers to foster new conversations and collaborations. Invited speakers will deliver plenary talks on the broad topic of black holes highlighting applications to astrophysics, quantum gravity, gravitational waves and strongly correlated systems. In addition to plenary speaker and senior scientist talks, we feature several plenary sessions devoted to the next generation of physicists. The senior scientists will also serve as “mentors” to the attending younger generation of researchers. Due to the limited size of the venue, early registration slots are limited. Early registration will expire on June 11th, 2017, or when the capacity has been reached. Limited financial reimbursement is available, for which participants may submit an application along with their registration. 
Karl Schwarzschild was a native of Frankfurt who published his first papers while attending the Gymnasium Frankfurt in the late 1880s. The year 2017 will mark the 101st anniversary of the publication of Schwarzschild’s famous solution to Einstein’s equations. 
The conference venue will be the Frankfurt Institute for Advanced Studies on the modern Riedberg Campus of Goethe University. For further information please visit the conference-webpage.
