The centenary of General Relativity has been marked by the exceptional
discovery of gravitational waves and the first direct evidence for the
existence of black holes. The Italian scientific community has been greatly
involved in these outstanding events from both the experimental and the
theoretical side. The Italian Society of General Relativity and Gravitational
Physics (SIGRAV) intends to celebrate these great achievements and discuss
the latest researches in Gravitational Physics and General Relativity.
We announce the XXII SIGRAV Conference to be held in Cefalù (Sicily)
from 12 to 18 September 2016 in the Sala delle Capriate, Town Hall Building,
Cefalù. The meeting will provide more than 50 plenary lectures focused on
the main topics of Gravity, Cosmology and Relativistic Astrophysics.
Some important satellite events will be related to the Conference;
the Amaldi Medal will be awarded to two European scientists, who
distinguished themselves in gravitational physics and the SIGRAV prize
for young researchers, who carried out researches of particular interest
in the field.

Summary and Goals of the Conference

The theme of the Biennial Conference of the Italian Society for
Gravitational Physics (SIGRAV) concerns Gravitational Physics in its
theoretical, experimental and phenomenological aspects, in particular,
Classical and Quantum Gravity, Relativistic Astrophysics and Cosmology
will be the main topics.
There will be about 50 plenary lectures (of which 10 Reviews) and
4 parallel sessions: 1) Classical Gravity, 2) Quantum Gravity,
3) Experimental Gravity 4) Relativistic Astrophysics.
Two related events will take place during the meeting: i) the Amaldi Medal
will be awarded to one or two European scientists who distinguished
themselves in gravitational physics; ii) SIGRAV prize to young researchers
who have carried out researches of particular importance in the field.
