Welcome to the website of the Australasian Society for General Relativity and Gravitation (ASGRG).

Our primary purpose is to provide a regional forum for members to discuss general relativity, to foster links between related societies and to act as an advocate for the profession. We bring together researchers working in a wide range of areas within mathematical, theoretical and experimental gravitation with particular interests in mathematical relativity, numerical relativity, exact solutions, quantum gravity, cosmology and experimental relativity, in particular the development of techniques and technologies for detecting gravitational waves.

We are recognised as the regional society for The International Society on General Relativity and Graviation and we are a cognate member of the Australian Institute of Phyics.


The 9th Australasian Conference on General Relativity and Gravitation was held at the Gravity Discovery Centre, Gingin, Western Australia in December 2017.

Plenary speakers inlcuded Matthew Bailes (Australia), Jun Luo (China), George Smoot (USA) and Tsvi Piran (Israel).
