29th meeting of the
Indian Association for General Relativity and Gravitation (IAGRG)
"The Era of Gravitational Waves"
Indian Institute of Technology Guwahati, Assam, India
May 18-20, 2017
The Indian Association for General Relativity and Gravitation (IAGRG) was first constituted in 1969 and has been active ever since in fostering general relativity related activities in the country. In particular, at the national level the IAGRG meeting is organised every two years, at various locations in the country. The Department of Physics at IIT Guwahati will be organising the 29th meeting of IAGRG during 18 -20 May, 2017.
The recent detection of gravitational waves from stellar mass binary black holes with the twin LIGO detectors has posed interesting questions in the field of Black Holes, Cosmology, Astrophysics and Gravity and opened a new era of gravitational wave astronomy. The theme of this meeting is "The Era of Gravitational Waves".
The aim is to bring together researchers working on Gravity, Relativistic Astrophysics, Cosmology and Gravitational Waves. The meeting will have plenary talks from experts in the field, parallel sessions in the form of workshops featuring developments and advances in the following areas:
An additional feature of this meeting will be interactive discussion sessions on special topics.
