Vilain gives a technical talk about coordinate systems and coordinate-free methods in general relativity.

Stachel presents the “prehistory” of the initial-value or Cauchy problem in general relativity.

Średniawa discusses the contributions of Myron Mathisson and Jan W. Weyssenhoff to general relativity.

Godart gives an account of the cosmological work of Georges Lemaître.

Norton talks about general covariance, and the historical treatment of manifolds.

Sanchez-Ron discussions contemporary reactions to Einstein’s theories, both among mathematicians and physicists, and among philosophers.

Miller gives an expository talk about the historical development of Einstein’s theory of general relativity, discussing inertial frames.

Kox describes the impact of Einstein’s work in the Netherlands, and reasons why it did not lead to a Dutch school of general relativity. A subsequent discussion about the general reception of Einstein’s works follows.

Kostro gives an account of Einstein’s notion of ether.

Kichenassamy discusses the Dirac equation in curved spacetime, and the history of the description of the coupling of an electron with a gravitational field.
