Conferences

GWIC sponsors 2 major international meetings and a number of workshops. These events provide opportunities to develop and exchange ideas in a lively interactive setting.

GWIC Sponsored Conferences

GWIC has strong ties to two major international meetings, held in alternating years. The Edoardo Amaldi Conferences on Gravitational Waves began in 1994, and have become regarded as the most important international conferences for the broader gravitational wave detection community. The LISA Symposium series focuses on various aspects of LISA, including LISA Technology and Design, Astronomy/Astrophysics with LISA, Cosmology/Fundamental Physics with LISA, Data Analysis and simulations, and LISA PathFinder.

GWIC is involved with two workshop series. The annual Gravitational-wave Physics and Astronomy Workshop (formerly the Gravitational Wave Data Analysis Workshop, GWDAW) is devoted to data analysis for current and future gravitational wave detectors, and studies of potential gravitational wave sources. The Gravitational Wave Advanced Detector Workshop (GWADW) brings together the experimental community to discuss future directions for gravitational wave detectors. Both workshops provide a lively interactive atmosphere.

Finally, the three pulsar-timing collaborations in GWIC sponsor a joint school and workshop each year. The International Pulsar Timimng Array (IPTA) School includes lectures and activities to help students and new researchers become more familiar with the tools used in the detection of gravitational waves from pulsar observations. The Workshop/Science Week gives all researchers an opportunity to share new ideas, discuss common problems and report recent progress.
