The Sverre Aarseth N-body meeting is a traditional meeting of scientists studying the stellar dynamics and evolution in self-gravitating systems.

History of the meeting dates back to 2004, when the first "Hoher List Observatory Meeting" was held. Since then, several more or less informal meetings in the spirit of lively discussions were held during the advent time. It is not definitely clear what the sequence number of the upcoming event should be. Referring to the meeting held in 2013, which was oficially announced as the "Third Aarseth N-body meeting in Bonn", we would only reach number 5 in 2015. There is, however, very strong evidence that more than two meetings were held before 2013. Therefore, we let the ordinal number of the meeting as an unknown variable, M, value of which is to be intensively discussed during the evening sessions.

The tradition of the meeting is strongly linked to the Argelander Institute for Astronomy, University of Bonn. For the first time, we are breaking this tradition by moving the meeting to Prague.


The M-th Aarseth N-body meeting will be held at the Astronomical Institute of the Charles University in Prague on December 15 – 18, 2015.
