Spanish Portuguese Relativity Meeting 2020 (EREP2020) - First announcement
14-17 September 2020, Aveiro, Portugal

The Spanish-Portuguese Relativity Meetings are annual conferences on General Relativity and Gravitation that date back to 1977. They are organized each year by one of the different groups doing research on Relativity and Gravitation in Portugal and Spain. The 2020 meeting will be hosted by the gravity group at the University of Aveiro.

In 2020, we celebrate the outstanding developments of the field, from the observations of gravitational waves and black hole imaging to the theoretical developments in modeling and fundamental issues.

The meeting will take place at the University of Aveiro Campus. The city of Aveiro is located on the west coast of Portugal, about 220 km north of Lisbon and 60 km south of Porto. It is known for its system of city canals and it is some times called the "Portuguese Venice".
