DATES: Monday 04 Apr, 2016 - Friday 08 Apr, 2016
VENUE : Ramanujan Lecture Hall, ICTS Bangalore

On 2016 February 11, two major international collaborations jointly announced the discovery of gravitational waves (GWs). The signal, produced by the collision of two black holes in the distance universe, was detected by two LIGO observatories on 2015 September 14. This confirms a major prediction of Einstein’s general theory of relativity and opens a new observational window onto the universe.
The Indian scientific community has made significant contributions to the GW science. The ICTS discussion meeting The Future of Gravitational-Wave Astronomy (with an associated conference) is organized to make use of this momentum to intensify the Indian contribution to this emerging research frontier. The meeting will bring together researchers from various aspects of GW science and from related areas, with an aim to develop more active collaborations.
Discussion meeting (April 4 to April 8, 2016)
The discussion meeting is meant for active researchers in GW astronomy and related areas. Due to logistical limitations, the meeting can accommodate only 30 participants. Participation by invitation only. If you would like to get an invitation, please contact us by e-mail. On-campus accommodation will be provided to selected participants. Participants are encouraged to support their own travel. Some travel support is available for students and young scientists.
Conference: (April 6 to April 7, 2016)
The conference, open to the wider scientific community, can accommodate 100 participants. There is no registration fee. No travel support is available for conference participants. However, campus accommodation can be provided to a small number of selected participants. Please apply using the online application form. Selected applicants will be informed by March 24.
ORGANIZERS: Parameswaran Ajith, K. G. Arun and Bala R. Iyer
