This 3rd “Galileo – Xu Guanqi meeting” will be held in Beijing from Oct. 11th to 15th, 2011. It represents a collaboration between ICRANet, University of Roma “Sapienza”, University of Nice “Sophia Antipolis”, Stockholm University, Free University of Berlin, ICRA, ENEA, INFN, ICTP, Observatoire de la Côte d’Azur, CBPF, the National Astronomical Observatory (Beijing), the Institutes of High Energy Physics, the Institute of Theoretical Physics, the Institute for the History of Natural Sciences, the Chinese Academy of Sciences, the Tsinghua University, the Peking University, the Beijing Normal University, the Leung Center for Cosmology and Particle Astrophysics, the Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics at the Chinese Academy of Sciences, the Kavli Institute for Astronomy and Astrophysics at Peking University, the Beijing Planetarium, the Tartu Observatory, the Vatican Observatory, and the Beijing Astronomical Society.

The meeting is particularly dedicated to recall the roots of the modern scientific research in the East and the West and review the recent progress in Physics and Astrophysics with special attention to one of the most advanced fields of scientific research: relativistic astrophysics. We will review current progress in the theoretical fields made possible by astronomical observations of the Sun, of the Stars and of the Universe. These results have been achieved thanks to the theories of Albert Einstein and to the unprecedented numbers of observational techniques: in X-ray, Gamma-ray, optical wave-lengths from space based observatories, in radio telescopes wavelengths from telescopes on the ground as well as in particle physics from underground observatories. We are looking for an international meeting of 274 participants, 137 from Asia and 137 from the rest of the Planet. The meeting is organized by an international organizing committee and a local organizing committee. Interested scientists and students can register themselves and submit title and abstract of their contributions on the webpage http://www.icranet.org/3gx

The registration fee for non-Chinese participants is 300€ (students 200€) before the deadline, 30th August, 2011. After the deadline, it is 400€ (students 300€).
