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.
