Gr@v is a team of researchers, based at the Mathematics and Physics Department of Aveiro University, Portugal, working on strong gravity, astrophysics and high energy physics. The group was established in 2010. In January 2015 Gr@v integrated the FCT funded CIDMA research unit (UIDB/04106/2020 and UIDP/04106/2020), as the Gravitational Geometry and Dynamics research group. The group scientific coordinator is C. Herdeiro.
The CIDMA research unit meeting 2020 took place on the 22-23 January at the Mathematics Department of Aveiro University. João Oliveira and Sonia Anton were the two Gr@v representatives in the scientific programme.
The Spanish-Portuguese Relativity Meeting (EREP2020) will take place at the University of Aveiro, from 14-17 September 2020. Registration will open on February 1st.
Taishi Ikeda, a post-doctoral researcher at IST-Lisbon, visited Gr@v from 6-11 January 2020 and gave a seminar on "Tidal effect on scalar cloud".
The Portuguese Science Foundation (FCT) launched the third edition of the "Individual Call to Scientific Employment Stimulus". The call will open from January 30th to February 26th 2020. This call funds post-doctoral positions at various seniority levels. Our group is open to support good candidates in Strong Gravity, Astrophysics and High Energy Physics. For further information contact the group coordinator C. Herdeiro (firstname.lastname@example.org).
The XII Black Holes workshop took place on 19-20 December 2020, at the University of Minho, in the Azurém Campus, Guimarães. As always, a fast paced, intense and stimulating meeting!
Alexandre Correia, Professor at Coimbra University, ended his term as scientific coordinator of the Gravitational Geometry and Dynamics Group (informally dubbed Gr@v) of CIDMA on 16 December 2019. Prof. Correia will cease to be a full member of CIDMA at the end of 2019 by virtue of his move to Coimbra University. The group is very grateful for his leadership. The new elected scientific coordinator is Carlos Herdeiro.
