Update 18.03.2020: Frontier in Numerical Relativity 2020 canceled!

Due to the deteriorating situation regarding the coronavirus (COVID-19), the scientific committee decided to cancel the Frontier in Numerical Relativity 2020 meeting.
A postponement of the event to August 2021 is currently evaluated by the scientific committee.
Further information will follow here.


Frontiers in Numerical Relativity 2020

In the history of numerical (or computational) general relativity, the "Frontiers" meeting in 1988 at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign (USA), played a pivotal role in establishing numerical relativity as a major topic in computational physics and simulation science. The "New Frontiers" meeting in 2006 at the AEI Potsdam convened after major breakthroughs in numerical simulations of binary systems. The goal of "Frontiers 2020" is to assess the state-of-the-art and point out future directions of numerical relativity in light of the breakthroughs in observations of gravitational waves and astrophysical counterparts.

Main Topics

  • Mathematical foundations

  • Numerical methods for the Einstein equations

  • High performance computing

  • Astrophysics (binary mergers, gravitational waves, counterparts)

  • Beyond current astrophysics and general relativity
