ERE2014: Spanish Relativity Meeting 2014 – Encuentros Relativistas Espanoles 2014
“Almost 100 years after Einstein’s revolution”
Valencia, Spain, 1-5 September 2014
The 2014 edition of the “Spanish Relativity Meeting” (ERE2014) will be held in Valencia from the 1st to the 5th of September 2014. The Spanish Relativity Meeting (ERE) is an international conference devoted to Relativity and Gravitation which is organized every year by different members of the Spanish Society of Gravitation and Relativity (SEGRE). This year, it will be hosted by the University of Valencia. A brief historical background of the ERE can be found at http://www.segre.es/en/historia.shtml .
The meeting will address the status of gravitation and general relativity one year before the centennial of the publication of Einstein’s theory, which will be celebrated on November 25th 2015, as it was stablished by the International Society on General Relativity and Gravitation. In particular ERE2014 will focus on three research lines: relativistic astrophysics, mathematical relativity, and the interphase between gravitation and quantum theory.
The meeting will take place at the ADEIT building and will consist of plenary talks given by invited speakers during the morning sessions and contributed talks during the afternoon.The latter will be distributed in topical parallel sessions.
The interdisciplinary character of the meeting is reflected in the list of confirmed invited speakers:
Abhay Ashtekar, Penn State University, USA.
