The Spanish Relativity Meeting (Encuentros Relativistas Españoles – ERE) is an international conference organized yearly by different members of the Spanish Society of Gravitation and Relativity (SEGRE). The 2015 edition will be hosted by the University of the Balearic Islands Relativity and Gravitation group from the 7th to the 11th of September 2015.

Coinciding with  the centennial of the publication of Einstein’s theory, the theme of the meeting will be “Stepping into the second century”, and we welcome speakers to present topics that will shape future research concerning all areas of gravitational physics and relativity.

The meeting will take place at the University of the Balearic Islands Campus at the Gaspar Melchor de Jovellanos building, and will consist of plenary sessions with talks by invited speakers in the morning, and contributed talks in parallel sessions in the afternoon.
