10-15 August, 2003
The Research Institute for Particle and Nuclear Physics (RMKI) and the Centre for Workshops in Theoretical Physics of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences organize a workshop on general relativity. The Workshop will be held 10-15 August, 2003 in Sárospatak (Tokaj region) Hungary.
The list of talks
The organizing committee plans to publish the
printed version of the talks in a proceedings volume.
From the mid eighties there has been a series of Hungarian Relativity Workshops (HRW). This meeting is intended to provide a new lease on life to this sequence of workshops while preserving of all the values of the former ones. As in case of previous meetings, the HRW will be an open meeting. Interested researchers and students in all areas of gravitational physics are invited to participate. However, to make the theme of the workshop to be coherent the organizers intend to provide higher preferences to specific problems related to the following four areas
1) Sources of gravitational radiation
(analytic and perturbative approaches)
2) Black hole physics
(general theory, black holes with exotic matter fields, e.g. Einstein-Yang-Mills(-Higgs) systems)
3) Cauchy problem in general relativity
4) Brane Worlds
(branes in cosmological and black hole context)
The organizers expect at least 30-35 people to be interested in attending
this workshop which they would like to make an attractive and scientifically
stimulating one. The main organizer of all the previous HRWs has been Zoltán
Perjés. The banquet of the meeting will be dedicated to Zoltán
who will be 60 in August.

This fee will cover the accommodation (at Hotel
Bodrog, Sarospatak) and full board for 5 days including 5 nights, coffee
and refreshments, an excursion to Tokaj, the conference dinner and
the conference proceedings. The Organizing Committee has applied to several
organizations for financial aid and, depending on the success of these
applications, we hope to be able to provide financial support to a
limited number of participants.

The workshop will be held in Sárospatak, the cultural and touristic centre of the world-famous Tokaj wine region in North-Eastern Hungary. It is situated on the banks of river Bodrog, which flows into Tisza about 30 km downstream at Tokaj. The city has several outstanding historical monuments, e.g., the late baroque building of the Calvinist College and the Rákoczi Castle,which is one of the best preserved and richest building complexes of the late Renaissance to be found in the country. The College was founded in 1531, and was one of the most respectable scholarly institutions throughout the centuries. The contemporary architecture of the city is also remarkable. The inner city contains several works of the most renowned representative of the so called "Hungarian organic architecture", Imre Makovecz.
