# Publication of the MG13 proceedings and first parallel sessions of the next MG14 (Rome, 2015)

The proceedings of the MG13 Meeting on General Relativity (Stockholm University, Sweden, 1 – 7 July 2012), edited by: Kjell Rosquist (Stockholm University, Sweden), Robert T Jantzen (Villanova University, USA) and Remo Ruffini (International Center for Relativistic Astrophysics Network (ICRANet), Italy & University of Rome “Sapienza”, Italy) are ready and will be printed and distributed by the end of 2014.

The three volumes of the proceedings of MG13 (see <http://www.worldscientific.com/worldscibooks/10.1142/9194>) give a broad view of all aspects of gravitational physics and astrophysics, from mathematical issues to recent observations and experiments. The scientific program of the meeting included 33 morning plenary talks during 6 days, and 75 parallel sessions over 4 afternoons.

Meanwhile, continues the organizers’ work on the program of the next MG14 of Rome, 2015.
