The 2nd Karl Schwarzschild Meeting on Gravitational Physics will be held in Frankfurt am Main, Germany on 20-24 July 2015. The conference will be held at Frankfurt Institute for Advanced Studies and will focus on the general theme of black holes, gravity and information.

The meeting will bring together both working specialists in the field and rising young researchers to foster new conversations and collaborations. Invited speakers will deliver plenary talks on the broad topic of black holes, gravity, and information, highlighting its applications to astrophysics, cosmology, particle physics, and strongly correlated systems. In addition to key note speaker and senior scientist talks, several sessions will be devoted to the next generation of gravitational physicists. The senior scientists will also serve as “mentors” to the attending younger generation of researchers.

Karl Schwarzschild was a native of Frankfurt who published his first papers while attending the Gymnasium Frankfurt in the late 1880s. The year 2015 will mark the 100th anniversary of the derivation of Schwarzschild's famous solution to Einstein's equations. The conference venue will be the Frankfurt Institute for Advanced Studies on the modern Riedberg Campus of Goethe University.
