At the end of February 1923, Albert Einstein visited Barcelona and other places in Catalonia. The visit was made at the invitation of the physicist Esteve Terradas, as part of a process promoted by different sectors of Catalan society to build a modern scientific community. During his visit to the city, Einstein was able to meet various personalities and local institutions, and to give several lectures on his research. Coinciding with the centenary of his visit, the City and Science Biennial commemorates this moment through two activities.

This workshop will feature several short presentations that will present some of Albert Einstein's contributions to knowledge, as they are currently being dealt with in institutes and research centres in our country. Gravitation and the challenges it poses today, the detection of gravitational waves from Earth and from space, cosmological mapping, applications in photonics and the applications of the global navigation satellite system are some of the topics that will be dealt with in the session.

The activity will be attended by Roberto Emparan, Diego Blas, Eugenio Coccia, Carlos F. Sopuerta, Hector Gil-Marin, Pablo Fosalba, Estel Cardellach and Antoni Rius. More information on the website of the Royal Academy of Sciences and Arts of Barcelona.
