The advent of gravitational-wave (GW) astronomy has opened a new scientific era, giving access to hitherto unexplored regimes and sources. In parallel to its countless astrophysical implications, GW science is also reshaping tests of fundamental physics and contributing to the growth of a new, interdisciplinary community.
The EuCAPT workshop "Gravitational wave probes of black hole environments" will bring together experts on GW sources and modelling, dark matter and GW searches, cosmology, and high-energy astrophysics to explore possible synergies in this emerging field.
The event will be held at Sapienza University of Rome on June 15-17, 2022. We expect to host some invited overview talks as well as contributed talks, and short presentations by students and early-career researchers.
List of topics:
- Overview on current and future status of GW observations
- GW searches for dark matter
- Role of environmental effects in GW astronomy and tests of gravity
- Environmental effects & primordial black holes
- Modelling accretion onto black holes
- Innovative data analysis and search pipelines for environmental effects
Registration are now open and the abstract submission deadline for contributed talks is on April 30th, 2022
