We would like to announce the 11th Iberian Gravitational Waves Meeting to be held in Valencia (Spain) on June 9-11, 2021.

The IGWM is an international conference set up yearly since 2011 by different groups around the Iberian Peninsula with interests in Gravitational Waves. After the cancelation of the meeting in 2020, this year it will take place in Valencia, Spain, organised by the Astronomy and Astrophysics Department (DAA) and the Mathematics Department (DM) of the University of Valencia. The 3-day meeting will have a hybrid form with the possibility of attending it in person (if covid-19 conditions allow for it) or online.

The goal of this series of meetings is to bring together researchers working in Gravitational Waves with the aim at promoting collaboration and synergies among them. It also serves as a way of keeping track of recent advances in the Iberian gravitational wave community. The meeting covers all aspects of gravitational waves, including theory, data analysis, experiments and multimessenger astronomy.

Additionally, a satellite meeting on the Einstein Telescope is under discussion for the 8th of June.
