This year is the hundredth anniversary of general relativity. In this occasion and profiting from the visit of Diana Kormos-Buchwald, chief editor of the Collected Papers of Albert Einstein, we have organized a small colloquium centered on Einstein and general relativity.

  • Diana Kormos-Buchwald (Einstein Papers Project, California Institute of Technology, Pasadena)
    Einstein dans les années 1920 : ses écrits, ses lettres, et ses autres projets d’avenir. [in English]
  • Jean Eisenstaedt (Observatoire de Paris)
    Aux racines du renouveau de la relativité générale, les trous noirs.
  • Jürgen Renn (Max Plank Institut für Wissenschaftsgeschichte, Berlin)
    Relativité générale : le renouveau.

N.B. En As a result of the current safety procedures at the Paris observatory (dictated by the National measures of terrorism prevention) and also because the number of available seats is limited, you will need to register in advance in order to access to the colloquium.
For registration, please write to from March 16th on.
You will get an invitation in return. Please bring the invitation and a piece of ID to the Observatory.
