The ICGAC-12 aimed to serve as a common platform around the Asia-Pacific region for the exchange and communication among all researchers in the fields of gravitation, astrophysics and cosmology. The scope covered in the conference includes dark matter, dark energy, experimental study of gravity, black holes, quantum Yang-Mills gravity, GR extension, variation of constants, fundamental physics space projects, relativistic astrophysics, white dwarfs, neutron stars, and gamma ray bursts.


  • Classical Gravity and GR Extensions
  • Classical and Quantum Cosmology, Dark Matter and Dark Energy
  • Black Holes and Wormholes
  • Strings, Branes, Higher Spin Fields, Quantum Gravity
  • Extra Dimensions and Variation of Constants
  • Gravitational Experiments
  • Relativistic Astrophysics

Readership: Students and Professionals in the areas of Gravitation, Astrophysics, and Cosmology.
Key Features:

  • New approach to accelerated cosmic expansion based on extremely weak gauge fields associated with conserved baryon number
  • Quantum gravity based on Yang-Mills type gauge symmetry of space-time and translational gauge symmetry
  • Prominent contributors: A Beesham, R Maartence (South Africa); Shapiro, C Romero, D Ditman (Brazil); V Frolov (Canada); V Man'ko (Mexico); A Dolgov (Italy); and well-known scientists from Russia
