IVth Iberian Gravitational Wave Meeting, Granada

The idea of the meeting 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. Please, feel free to send this announcement to scientists that may be interested in attending.

The meetings are informal, and there will be no registration fee. There are also no parallel sessions, or posters. And they are designed to encourage the presentation of work in progress (or even being started or planned). All participants wishing to speak can do so, by naming a topic when they register.
