Dawn VI Meeting on Next Generation Observatories

October 5-7, 2021
Online meeting

Welcome

The next Dawn meeting to assess and develop world-wide coordination for the next generation of ground-based gravitational-wave observatories will be held online/remotely on 5, 6, and 7 October.

The three-day program will be centered on the next generation of ground-based gravitational-wave observatories and their synergy with the greater landscape of scientific observatories of the 2030s.  Cosmic Explorer, a concept developed with US National Science Foundation support, will be a particular focus; Einstein Telescope, the European next generation concept, is an important complement and partner in forming a network. As with previous Dawn meetings, discussions both organized and informal will be a central element in the program. We look forward to your participation!

The Scientific Organizing Committee is currently selecting the speakers, panel members, and discussion leaders. While no contributed talks are anticipated, the workshop-style meeting will set aside considerable time for participation by all to insure questions and ideas from the community will be heard.

The report from the meeting will be circulated to all participants for refinement, and there will be an opportunity to sign the report as a record of the meeting.

Because the meeting is online/remote, no registration fee is required; however, the coordinates for the meeting will be shared via the registration list and we ask that all participants register. Please register by September 5, 2021.
