Given the worldwide disruption created by the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, the Spanish and Portuguese Relativity Societies have decided to postpone the EREP2020 until September 2021. The venue is kept and the new dates of the meeting are 13-16 September 2021. The organising committee is deeply sorry for any inconvenience this may cause and would like to wish all of Humanity strength, wisdom and solidarity in fighting this crisis.


The Spanish-Portuguese Relativity Meetings are annual conferences on General Relativity and Gravitation that date back to 1977. They are organized each year by one of the different groups doing research on Relativity and Gravitation in Portugal and Spain. The 2020 meeting will be hosted by the gravity group at the University of Aveiro.

In 2020, we celebrate the outstanding developments of the field, from the observations of gravitational waves and black hole imaging to the theoretical developments in modeling and fundamental issues.

The meeting will take place at the University of Aveiro Campus.  The city of Aveiro is located on the west coast of Portugal, about 220 km north of Lisbon and 60 km south of Porto. It is known for its system of city canals and it is some times called the "Portuguese Venice".
