We are pleased to announce the 2020 edition of the North American Einstein Toolkit Workshop. The Workshop to be held at the Center for Computation & Technology at Louisiana State University will provide an opportunity for researchers and students to learn about the Einstein Toolkit (https://einsteintoolkit.org/), a community-driven software platform of core computational tools to advance and support research in relativistic astrophysics and gravitational physics.

The workshop will offer a school on the first two days introducing new users on how to install and run the Einstein Toolkit, and useful post-processing and visualizations tools. During the next two days, the workshop will highlight exciting science cases and the latest developments in numerical relativity. On the final day, we will discuss future directions and development.

Travel Support:

Submissions for travel support are now being accepted, students interested in relativistic astrophysics are encouraged to apply.  Please "register"  with your estimated travel fund need.
