524. WEHeraeusSeminar 
Generously funded by: 
Equations of Motion in Relativistic Gravity 

Physikzentrum Bad Honnef, Bad Honnef, Germany, 17.02.  23.02.2013 
Organizers: D. Puetzfeld (ZARM, U Bremen), C. Laemmerzahl (ZARM, U Bremen), B.F. Schutz (AEI, MPI Potsdam) 

Scientific Topics
 Equations of motion in General Relativity (GR) and in alternative gravity theories (motion of extended test bodies, selfforce, selfgravitating/heavy bodies, test bodies with microstructure)
 Approximation methods linked to the derivation of the equations of motion (multipolar, postNewtonian, postMinkowskian)
 Current and future observations (gravitational waves, pulsars, celestial mechanics, astrometry, satellite experiments)
Proceedings
Proceedings for this conference are available from Springer.
Equations of Motion in Relativistic Gravity
D. Puetzfeld et. al. (eds.), Fundamental Theories of Physics 179, Springer, 2015
DOI 10.1007/9783319183350, ISBN: 9783319183343 (Print), ISBN: 9783319183350 (Online)

Venue
The 524. WEHeraeusSeminar will take place at the Physikzentrum Bad Honnef (PBH) in Germany.
Directions to the PBH can be found here (the closest airport to Bad Honnef is CologneBonn  airport code CGN).
Important dates and registration
We particularly encourage students and young researchers to participate in this seminar. Potential participants should send an email (indicating their academic status (master student, PhD student, postdoc etc.) and include their departmental address as well as their email) by
15 November 2012
to
eom2013 puetzfeld.org
The final selection of participants will be made until 10 January 2013 by the organizers. There are no conference fees. The living expenses (overnight costs and meals) for all selected participants will be covered by the WEHeraeus foundation. Since the number of participants to this seminar is limited we encourage early registrations.
