The 25th RAGtime workshop will be held in a hybrid form in Opava from November 27th to December 1st 2023.
The number of registered participants is limited, the registration is moderated. Please wait with your travel plans until you receive the registration confirmation. Registration connected to the submitted abstract will have priority.
The RAGtime workshops
The series of the annual RAGtime workshops has been held at the Institute by the Relativistic Astrophysics Group (RAG) since 1999. Its scientific scope is devoted to current problems of relativistic astrophysics, mainly focused on the physics of black holes and neutron stars. The workshop is attended by multiple experts in the field and allows for many valuable discussions and interactions between the participants.
The scientific focus of the workshop will traditionally be devoted mainly to problems of relativistic physics of black holes and neutron or quark stars. Large attention will be given to confronting theoretical models with up-to-date observations available through both electromagnetic and gravitational wave windows to the Universe.
Special attention will be devoted to the modelling of astrophysical effects in the combined strong gravity and relevant external magnetic fields. Current issues in accretion theory will be explored. We will furthermore attempt to address problems related to cosmology, mathematical aspects of the theory of relativity, and alternative theories of gravity.
In addition, new methods of generating complex general relativistic solutions containing a black hole will be exposed. We will also focus on national and international collaboration regarding the present and future cosmic X-ray missions.
The EXPRO meeting
The EXPRO group meeting will be held as a part of the workshop on Tuesday, November 28th, from 12:45 at Uni Space Lab (Coffee break place).
