This workshop will discuss the future of research in general relativity following the 100th anniversary of Einstein's publication of the theory, with a focus on topics where computational methods will be key to making progress on interesting open questions. The workshop will focus on 3 broad areas: gravitational wave astrophysics, theoretical general relativity, and novel computational methods.
