The 10th International Conference on Gravitation and Cosmology (ICGC) will be hosted by the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Guwahati, India during December 6 - 9, 2023. Since its inception in 1987, ICGC meetings are held once in four years and are organized by the Indian Association for General Relativity and Gravitation (IAGRG). The tenth edition of this conference at IIT Guwahati aims to bring together experts working in the area of Gravitation and Cosmology to discuss the recent developments, present status and exchange ideas while providing young researchers from India an opportunity for interaction with experts. The programme will have a series of plenary lectures, with parallel and poster sessions.

In addition, this year, we are celebrating the birth-centenary year of Prof. Amal Kumar Raychaudhuri, a renowned relativist well-known for the Raychaudhuri equation. One special evening session will be organized in this meeting.

Another evening session will be organized to remember Prof. Thanu Padmanabhan and his invaluable contributions to gravitational physics.
