XIIth International Conference on Gravitation, Astrophysics and Cosmology (ICGAC-12), Peoples’ Friendship University of Russia (PFUR), Moscow, Russia, June 28 – July 5, 2015, organized by the Russian Gravitational Society, Institute for Gravitation and Cosmology, PFUR, Center for Gravitation and Fundamental Metrology, VNIIMS and Bogoliubov Laboratory of Theoretical Physics, Dubna. The Conference is devoted to 100 years of Einstein’s General Theory of Relativity.

ICGAC-12 is a part of the series of biennial conferences on Gravitation, Astrophysics and Cosmology which takes place in the 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, Korea, one of the founders of the APCTP, in 1993.

The 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 Institute of Gravitation and Cosmology, Peoples’ Friendship University of Russia
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
11. Almaty, Kazakhstan (2013) at Al Farabi Kazakh National University
