In 1949, Kurt Gödel showed that there exist solutions to Ei nstein's equations of general relativity allowing for closed timelike curves. The existence of such curves would allow time travel into one's own past leading to all kind of causality paradoxes. Today there is an ongoing debate on how physical such s olutions are and whether general relativity would prevent the formation of regions where causality v iolation is possible. Closely related are Gödel's philosophical ideas on the existence of time, a su bject that he intensively discussed with Einstein in Princetown. 'In my view Kurt Gödel's papers rep resent an important contribution to general relati vity, especially his analysis of the concept of ti me.' said Einstein.

\n\nThe Kurt Goedel So ciety intends to celebrate the 70th anniversary of Gödel's seminal publication and the 100th anniver sary of the decisive experimental verification of general relativity by organizing a conference at t he University of Vienna, Austria. This event will bring together the prominent researchers from the fields of Physics, Mathematics, Philosophy and Art ificial Intelligence. The conference will be enhan ced with a special exhibition about life and work of Kurt Gödel with emphasis on Gödel's solution.\n
