27th Capra Meeting on Radiation Reaction in General Relativity, June 17-21 2024, Singapore

The Capra meeting is an annual workshop on the topic of radiation reaction in general relativity. The primary focus of these workshops is the development of the gravitational self-force approach to model extreme mass ratio inspirals and further our understanding of the two-body problem in general relativity. This is done in synergy with other well known modeling techniques such as post-Newtonian theory and numerical relativity. The canonical example of an extreme mass-ratio Inspiral (EMRI) is the inspiral of a stellar-mass compact object into a supermassive black hole. Gravitational waves from these systems are a promising target for the future space-based detector LISA, which is currently scheduled to launch in the mid-2030's by the European Space Agency with support from NASA.

Black Holes Inside and Out, August 26-30 2024, Copenhagen

The gravitational physics landscape has been evolving rapidly, driven in good part by our ability to study strong-field regions, in particular black holes. Black holes are the most amazing macroscopic objects in the universe. According to Einstein’s General Relativity, their exterior is extremely simple, while their interior holds the failure of the underlying theory. There are thus strong reasons to tests black hole spacetimes, an endeavor made possible by gravitational-wave astronomy. Black hole physics is an active field of research, which witnessed a number of important results in the last few years.
