International Society on General Relativity and Gravitation elects prof. Jiří Bičák a Fellow

The International Society on General Relativity and Gravitation was founded in 1971 with the objective of promoting the study of general relativity and gravitation, and its application in astrophysics and cosmology. It currently has over 1500 registered individual members, alongside a number of national companies.
