The Max Planck Institute for Gravitational Physics (Albert Einstein Institute) is the
largest research institute in the world specializing in general relativity and beyond.
The institute is located in Potsdam-Golm and in Hannover where it is closely related
to the Leibniz Universität Hannover.
November 30 - December 5, 2015 The year 2015 marks the 100th anniversary of Einstein's field equations. To celebrate this event, the Max Planck Institute for Gravitational Physics (or Albert Einstein Institute) will host a conference during the week of November 30, 2015, exactly one hundred years after the publication of Einstein's paper. The conference will take place in the recently renovated Harnack House in Berlin, where Albert Einstein regularly lectured between 1915 and 1931.
This joint exhibition of AIP, DESY, University of Potsdam, proWissen, and AEI shows how different our Universe looks in different wavelenghts and how simulations reveal the dark side of the cosmos.
LISA Pathfinder will demonstrate novel technologies for space-based gravitational wave observation. The Albert Einstein Institute invites media representatives and the general public for a launch event on December 2 in Hannover.
