The Society

The International Society on General Relativity and Gravitation, ISGRG, is an international learned society. It acts as Affiliated Commission 2 (AC.2) of the International Union of Pure and Applied Physics (IUPAP).

The Society's purposes are ``to promote the study of GRG and to exchange information in the interest of its members and the profession''. It pursues these aims in several ways: it organizes a triennial conference, publishes a journal "General Relativity and Gravitation," sponsors a bulletin and website service, Hyperspace, and represents its research community in international science politics through IUPAP, acting as its responsible commission for other relevant conferences. See under Activities.

The Society was formed in 1971, as the successor to the International Committee on General Relativity and Gravitation: for more information see under History. Its constitution and current structure are posted on this web site under Organization.

Members are offered reduced registration fees for the major conferences organized by the Society, reduced rate subscriptions to the Society's journal, and discount book offers. They are able to take part in international science policy-making and in the Society's representation of our community on issues of national and international policy, ranging from the treatment of individual scientists by their governments to the funding of international space missions. Membership is open to "All technically competent scientists who have an interest in GRG." Full information on benefits, eligibility and how to join are given under Membership and Dues.

Within IUPAP the GRG Society is one of the participants in its Working Group called the Gravitational Wave International Committee (GWIC). Other related bodies, including national and regional GRG societies are listed under Related organizations.
