The GRn conferences

We list here the conferences organized under the auspices of the International Society on General Relativity and Gravitation and its predecessors. Since 1980 all meetings have published both an Abstracts volume, containing information on contributed papers for use during the meeting, and a Proceedings which records the plenary lectures and summarizes the workshops. For these we give the bibliographic information. Earlier conferences usually did not publish abstracts and some did not publish Proceedings.
