22nd International Conference on General Relativity and Gravitation

Faculty of Physics, University of Valencia
7-12 de julio de 2019

Two essential events for learning about the new horizons of space and a week in which two unique international conferences take place for the first time in Spain.

The beginning of a new era for astronomy is here. The emission of gravitational waves following the fusion of two black holes was detected for the first time by two interferometers in Washington and Louisiana in the USA. This experiment was the winner of the Nobel Prize for Physics in 2017. In Europe, the VIRGO detector has announced the first triple detection of a gravitational signal which opens up new horizons in our knowledge of the universe.

These breakthroughs are to be discussed at the 22nd International Conference on General Relativity and Gravitation, the latest in the series of triennial international conferences held under the auspices of the International Society on General Relativity and Gravitation, and the 13th Amaldi Conference on Gravitational Waves, held under the auspices of the Gravitational Wave International Committee every two years. They are the preeminent international conferences for the gravitational-wave detection community.

The congress is coordinated by University of Valencia Faculty of Physics lecturer José Antonio Font and University of Valencia professor José Navarro, while the Universidad Empresa UV-ADEIT Foundation provides the organisational support.

Over the course of a week, these two conferences, taking place for the first time in Spain, will discuss topics such as gravitational-wave astronomy, cosmology, relativistic astrophysics, numerical and mathematical relativity and quantum gravity and will attract 1,000 delegates from some 20 countries.
