About the Conference
The 9th International Conference on Gravitation and Cosmology (ICGC) will be hosted by the Indian Institute of Science Education and Research Mohali (IISERM).
ICGC meetings are held once in four years and are organised by the Indian Association for General Relativity and Gravitation. This meeting aims at bringing together active scientists to take stock of present status in Gravitation and Cosmology and exchange ideas, as well as offer young researchers from India an opportunity for interaction with experts.
The programme will have a series of plenary lectures, with parallel workshops and poster sessions. The year 2019 also marks the centenary of Eddington’s famous solar eclipse test of General Relativity and the conference will have special lectures to mark this milestone.
Abstracts are invited from the interested participants.
