14th Central European Relativity Seminar

February 14-16, 2024, Tübingen

CERS series

The Tübingen meeting will be the 14th seminar of a series initiated at the Erwin Schrödinger Institute in Vienna in 2011. This series of seminars is designed to provide a forum for younger researchers to present their work, and to expand their research horizons, in all topics of research in general relativity. While the main geographical basin of attraction is Austria, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland and Germany, we welcome researchers from all countries.

Registration and abstract submission

Registration deadline: 07.02.2024

Abstract submission deadline: 14.01.2024

In previous CERS meetings the contributed talks were allocated 15 minutes plus 5 minutes for discussion. This remains the likely time frame for the talks in this meeting, to be confirmed in due course. We plan to organise a poster session as well.

Decisions about abstract acceptance will be taken by the end of January 2024.

We can give out up to 5 travel fellowships for participating young scientists, each worth up to EUR 200. To apply for those please contact Dr. Karim Mosani (karim.mosani AT uni-tuebingen.de), providing a short CV, a publication list if relevant, and a brief statement why you would like to participate in the CERS meeting and what other options for funding your trip you have tried. The deadline for submitting travel fellowship applications coincides with the deadline for abstract submission.
