Bern, Unitobler, Lerchenweg 36, room F-122, CH-3000 Bern 9
09:15 - 18:00
This conference aims at an integrated understanding of how
Einstein’s theory of relativity gained momentum. The focus is on the early
reception of Einstein's theory in physics and philosophy and on the
systematic questions that emerged shortly after Einstein's discovery of
the field equations. The topics of the talks cover philosophical,
historical and physical aspects of

cosmological models
black holes
gravitational waves
unified field theory
metaphysics of space and time
the relationship between spacetime and matter
