This school will feature a set of advanced lecture courses around the theme of gravity given by experts in the field. The courses will be 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 to the universe.
The school is co-organised by CEICO, a new institute at 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 are bringing eminent lecturers from the global community and hope to foster a diverse audience. There will be limited space for the presentation of a poster, but no submitted talks by participants are planned.
There is no registration fee, but participants should sort out their own accommodation (see Venue and Accommodation).
You can download the Gravity@Prague poster in low and high resolution.

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 sort out their accommodation; we recommend to book your stay well in advance as September is still high season in Prague.
An informal welcome reception will be held on Sunday, September 9th from 18h00 to 22h00 at Jatka78.
Details about the social dinner will be given in the next weeks.
