Group Pages

The Gravitational Physics Division of the EPS represents and provides a forum for European scientists interested in any aspect of gravitational physics.

Some of the topics to be covered by the GPD:
-  the issue of time and space in fundamental physics
-  gravitational waves (theory & experiment)
-  quantum gravity (theory & experiment)
-  gravitational astrophysics
-  gravity theories beyond General Relativity
-  cosmology
-  analogues of gravity

Board members of the GPD



The EPS GPD has now signed 4 memorandum of understanding (for cooperation)
 with the following national relativity societies:

1) Hellenic Society on Relativity, Gravitation and Cosmology (Memorandum  IMG_20180407_0001.pdf):

2) Spanish Society of Gravitation and Relativity (Memorandum IMG_20180407_0002.pdf):

3) Polish Society on Relativity (Memorandum IMG_20180407_0003.pdf):

4) Italian Society for General Relativity and Gravitational Physics (SIGRAV) (Memorandum IMG_20180407_0004.pdf):



1) The conference on the Einstein Telescope takes place from 19 to 20 April 2018
    in Cascina, see homepage


2)  First EPS Conference on Gravitation 19- 21 February 2019 in Rome 

The first EPS (European Physical Society)  Conference on Gravitation
will be held at the Sapienza University (Rome, Italy) from February 19th to
February 21th, 2019.

The aim of the conference is to discuss about several aspects of
Gravitation, such as measurements of the G constant, Quantum Gravity, Geodesy, General Relativity tests,
and obviously Gravitational Waves
(from the experimental, theoretical and data analysis point of views).

Registration will be opened in due time  and abstract submission will be  welcome on these  topics.
Please find further information at

The conference will be organized in days focused around key topics introduced by invited speakers and  followed by contributed talks. There will also be a poster session, together with four Young Scientists Awards to the best poster contributions by skilled young researchers.

The deadline for abstract submission is December 15th, 2018 and the deadline for early registration is January 2019. The Local and Scientific Organizing Committees are looking forward to welcoming you in Rome.
