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.
The workshop will bring together theoretical physicists working on different approaches to quantum gravity (with an interest in early universe cosmology) and cosmologists studying fundamental aspects of cosmological models (and interested in quantum gravity effects in the early universe).
March 3 - 14, 2014 The University of Potsdam and the Max Planck Institute for Gravitational Physics (Albert Einstein Institute) offer a crash course on General Relativity and its astrophysical applications.
