Spanish Portuguese Relativity Meeting 2021 (EREP2021)

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 2021 meeting will be hosted by the gravity group at the University of Aveiro.

In 2021, 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. This new golden era of strong gravity is attested by the three Nobel physics prizes in the last four years: in 2017 for gravitational waves (Barish, Thorne, Weiss), in 2019 for Cosmology (Peebles) and in 2020 for black holes (Genzel, Ghez, Penrose).

Due to the ongoing pandemia, the meeting will take place online. Further information will be given closer to the event.
