20th Capra Meeting on Radiation Reaction in General Relativity

The 20th Capra Meeting on Radiation Reaction in General Relativity, hosted by the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, will be held on campus from June 19 to 23, 2017. For further information, lodging, registration, and abstract submission, see the meeting website.

Deadline – May 20, 2017: Rooms at group rate.
A block of rooms are being held at a Hampton Inn near campus at a conference rate of $124/night (breakfast included). See the conference website for a link to reserve a room at this rate.

Deadline – June 7, 2017: Abstract/title submission.

Deadline – June 7, 2017: Registration deadline for reception/dinner on June 21.

The meeting will consist of three to four days of invited and contributed talks, followed by one to two days of informal workshop discussions. As usual the program will focus on aspects of the self-force in general relativity, but will also seek to explore connections to other approaches to the two-body problem. Following the Capra tradition, the meeting will be informal. There will be no registration fee and no proceedings. The program will include a few invited review talks, short contributed presentations (20 to 30 minutes), and open discussions. Contributed talks on all aspects of the radiation reaction problem (including related topics such as EMRI astrophysics or data analysis) are welcome.
