The Fourteenth Marcel Grossmann Meeting will be held in Rome, Italy, at the University of Rome “La Sapienza”, July 12-18, 2015.Since 1975, the Marcel Grossman Meetings have been organized in order to provide opportunities for discussing recent advances in gravitation, general relativity and relativistic field theories, emphasizing mathematical foundations, physical predictions and experimental tests. The objective of these meetings is to elicit exchange among scientists that may deepen our understanding of space-time structures as well as to review the status of ongoing experiments aimed at testing Einstein’s theory of gravitation either from the ground or from space. Previous meetings have been held in Trieste (1975) and (1979), Shanghai (1982), Rome (1985), Perth (1988), Kyoto (1991), Stanford (1994), Jerusalem (1997), Rome (2000), Rio (2003), Berlin (2006), Paris (2009) and Stockholm (2012). Interested scientists should address a member from any one of the organizing committees or the conference secretariat.

This edition of the Marcel Grossmann Meeting marks the 100th anniversary of the Einstein equations and celebrates the International Year of Light 2015 organized by UNESCO and with the Golden Jubilee of Relativistic Astrophysics, all of which will be celebrated by MG14 and other satellite meetings (soon announced).
