16th Capra Meeting on Radiation Reaction in General Relativity

Since the inaugural meeting of 1998 (held at Caltech's Capra ranch near San Diego) Capra meetings have been bringing together relativists interested in the problem of radiation reaction in relativity and its application to extreme-mass-ratio inspirals (EMRIs) as astrophysical sources of gravitational waves. The meetings address an important open problem in gravitational theory, made particularly relevant by the exciting prospect of directly observing gravitational waves from EMRIs in the near future. The 16th Capra Meeting on Radiation Reaction in General Relativity will be hosted by the School of Mathematical Sciences at University College Dublin, marking its first return to Ireland since 1999 when the 2nd Capra Meeting was also held in UCD. The meeting will run from the 15th to 19th of July 2013, starting with three days of invited and contributed talks and followed by two days of informal discussions.
