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. Particular research interests include: mathematical and numerical relativity; exact solutions; quantum gravity; cosmology and experimental relativity; and gravitational wave detection, data analysis, and astrophysics.

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


The next Australasian Conference on General Relativity and Gravitation (ACGRG) organised by the Society will be held in 2023.


The Society was formed at a meeting of mathematicians and physicists in Canberra, September 1994. Its official name and constitution were adopted at its first General Meeting in Adelaide, February 1996.

The website of the Society was previously hosted at the University of Canterbury, and at the University of Adelaide.
