This school featured a set of advanced lecture courses around the theme of gravity given by experts in the field. The courses were aimed at advanced graduate students and young postdocs with a strong interest in the theoretical aspect of gravity and applications of the theory to modelling the universe.

The school was co-organised by CEICO, a centre in the Institute of Physics of the Czech Academy of Sciences for research in cosmology, gravity and fundamental physics and the Faculty of Mathematics and Physics of Charles University in Prague. We brought eminent lecturers from the global community and hope to foster a diverse audience. There was limited space for the presentation of a poster, but no submitted talks by participants were planned.

There was no registration fee, and participants arranged their own accommodation (see Venue).

Venue and Accommodation

Lectures will be held at the Faculty of Mathematics and Physics of Charles University in Troja, Prague 8.
We will not be offering a hybrid component or remote presence during the school.

The closest bus stops are Pelc Tyrolka (bus line 112) and Kuchyňka (bus line 201). The closest station is Nádraží Holešovice, reached by the Metro Line C (red line) and several tram lines, from which one can take the bus 201 or walk about 1.5km across the Troja Bridge (Trojský Most) or the Bridge of the Barricade Fighters (Most Barikádníků). Google Maps has the Prague public transportation timetables and can be reliably used to gauge travel time when choosing accommodation.

Participants are expected to arrange their accommodation; we recommend to book your stay well in advance as September is still high season in Prague.

Tourist information about Prague and the Czech Republic can be found on many comprehensive resources online, such as Wikivoyage (Czech Republic and Prague) and the official Prague tourist website. More about events and culture in Prague can be found on expats.cz and GoOut.


A social dinner will be held at Pavilon Grébovka at 19:00 on Wednesday 21 September. Google Maps directions are here.
This event will be free to participants. Significant others are welcome at own cost (1000 CZK, payable during the school before the dinner).
