100 years after the discovery of the theory of general relativity one of the greatest challenges is the question concerning the interconnection between the theory of relativity and quantum theory. Our scientific workshop is aimed at scientists who work in general relativity,  or use the theory of general relativity in their research.

Experimental and theoretical physicists as well as mathematicans are invited to participate in our scientific program. Both leading scientists and young, aspiring researchers alike will discuss recent deveploment and new perspectives in this fascinating field of research.
