III International meeting on Lorentzian Geometry
Castelldefels (Barcelona, Spain) November 21-23, 2005


There will be a mini-course on Lorentzian Geometry and Relativity, by Miguel Sánchez (University of Granada) to commemorate the Einstein centennial. Also, there will be two types of talks:
a) 45-minutes conferences (in the morning),
b) 30-minutes short talks (in the evening).
You can send your proposal for a conference or a talk by registering using our on-line form.

Here are the abstracts of the talks.

This is the provisional timetable:
