The Fourth Galileo – Xu Guangqi Meeting, Beijing

The year 2015 is the 100th anniversary of Albert Einstein’s presentation of the Theory of General Relativity. To celebrate the big event, the International Conference on Gravitation and Cosmology/the fourth Galileo-Xu Guangqi Meeting will be held on May 4-8, 2015 at the Institute of Theoretical Physics, Chinese Academy of Sciences (ITP-CAS), Beijing, China, associated with the KITPC/ITP-CAS program “The Next Detectors for Gravitational Wave Astronomy” (April 6 to May 8, 2015). The goal of this conference is to bring the leading scientists working on gravitation, cosmology and relativistic astrophysics together, to review the current status and to present further directions in gravity, cosmology and relativistic astrophysics, and to promote relevant researches in China.

In this five days meeting will be dedicated to the following main topics:
Einstein General Relativity, it’s precision tests and solutions: black holes and gravitational waves.
High energy astrophysics, GRBs, neutron stars, supernova and dark matter distributions.
Classical and quantum gravity, cosmology, early Universe, dark energy and dark matter models.

So far almost 200 participants have registered to the meeting.

MG Awards will be delivered on Monday to Nobel Laureates Prof. C.N. Yang and Prof. T.D. Lee.

On Monday Prof. C.N. Yang is going to give a 15 minutes speech, mostly on Fermi and his influence on him.

On Monday evening Prof. R. Ruffini will deliver a public lecture in KITPC.
