29th meeting of the Indian Association for General Relativity and Gravitation, Assam, India
The Indian Association for General Relativity and Gravitation (IAGRG) was first constituted in 1969 and has been active ever since in fostering general relativity related activities in the country. In particular, at the national level the IAGRG meeting is organised every two years, at various locations in the country. The Department of Physics at IIT Guwahati will be organising the 29th meeting of IAGRG during 18 -20 May, 2017.
The recent detection of gravitational waves from stellar mass binary black holes with the twin LIGO detectors has posed interesting questions in the field of Black Holes, Cosmology, Astrophysics and Gravity and opened a new era of gravitational wave astronomy. The theme of this meeting is “The Era of Gravitational Waves”.
The aim is to bring together researchers working on Gravity, Relativistic Astrophysics, Cosmology and Gravitational Waves. The meeting will have plenary talks from experts in the field, parallel sessions in the form of workshops featuring developments and advances in the following areas: Gravitational Waves and Relativistic Astrophysics, Cosmology, Classical gravity and Quantum gravity.
