Dynamics and Black Hole Imaging

Conference Date: 
Lundi, Août 12, 2019 (All day) to Vendredi, Août 23, 2019 (All day)
Scientific Areas: 
Strong Gravity

 

With the advent of black hole imaging, we are now moving forward to black hole cinema.  This workshop aims to collect the expertise across the Event Horizon Telescope Collaboration to develop, implement and apply methods to access and interpret variability in M87 and Sgr A*.  The goal is to lay the foundation for the first publications based on black hole movies.

Registration for this conference is now closed.
