Dear colleagues,

We are glad to inform you about the XIth International Conference on Gravitation, Astrophysics and Cosmology of Asia – Pacific Countries (ICGAC-11), which will take place at the Al Farabi Kazakh National University in Almaty, Kazakhstan, October 1-5, 2013.

The program of conference includes original talks and poster communications, round tables and informal discussions on selected problems of gravitation, cosmology and relativistic astrophysics.

ICGAC-11 is a part of series of biennial conferences on Gravitation, Astrophysics and Cosmology which takes place in Asia-Pacific region with the goal to promote cooperation among the member countries and within an international context, to promote high level studies on hot topics and to encourage young physicists on these fields. The first meeting was initiated by Prof. Yong Min Cho, one of the founders of the APCTP, in 1993.

The previous meetings were held in :

1. Seoul, Korea (1993) at Seoul National University
2. Hsinchu, Taiwan (1995) at National Tsing Hua University
3. Tokyo, Japan (1997) at The Institute for Cosmic Ray Research, Tokyo University
4. Beijing, China (1999) at Beijing Normal University
5. Moscow, Russia (2001) at The Center for Gravitation and Cosmology, Peoples’ Friendship University
6. Seoul, Korea (2003) at Ewha Women’s University
7. Jhongli, Taiwan (2005) at National Central University
8. Nara, Japan (2007) at Nara Women’s University
9. Wuhan, China (2009) at Huazhong University of Science and Technology
10. Qui-Nhon, Vietnam (2011) with assistence of Rencontre du Vietam
