The Iberian Gravitational Waves Meeting is an international conference organized yearly by different members of the Red Tematica de Ondas Gravitacionales (REDONGRA). This year it will he hosted by the Relativity and Gravitation group of the University of the Balearic Islands, Spain.

The idea is to bring together researchers with interest in the development of Gravitational Wave Astronomy, including researchers from related areas of Astrophysics, Cosmology, and Fundamental Physics. The goal is to cover the main developments within the Iberian context in instrumentation, data analysis and theory.

The format of this edition will be similar to the previous ones: a 3-day informal-style meeting starting on May 7th and ending on May 9th, 2018, with no registration fee and significant time for discussions. The meeting will take place at the University of the Balearic Islands at the Son Lledo building.
