The talks at this meeting are aimed at a wide mathematical audience (graduate students working in classical and quantum theories of gravity are especially welcome) and cover a range of theoretical and experimental developments growing from Einstein's General Theory of Relativity. Anyone interested is welcome to attend. This Spitalfields Day is linked to the Isaac Newton Institute programme Global Problems in Mathematical Relativity.

Please let Tracey Andrew at the Institute know by 31 October 2005 if you intend to come: telephone (01223) 335984; fax: (01223) 330508; e-mail:

There are limited funds available to assist research students to attend, please apply by 31 October 2005 to Tracey Andrew by email or post at the Newton Institute, 20 Clarkson Road, Cambridge, CB3 0EH.
