The talks will take place in the main lecture theater in the central building of the Max-Planck-Campus. They will be given in English, questions can be asked in German and will be translated.

During the "informal part" of the evening we will provide information (posters, movies etc.) about gravitational wave detectors such as LIGO, GEO600 and LISA, and Einstein@Home, and have a number of competent people to talk to. In particular the Einstein@Home developers Badri Krishnan and Bernd Machenschalk will be there to answer questions, give further information and to just talk to.

Bruce Allen, Bernd Machenschalk and Reinhard Prix (among others) are looking forward to meet you.
