Workshop GW Astrophysics for Early Career Scientists

May 03, 2021

Virtual  Workshop on Gravitational Wave Astrophysics for Early Career Scientists 3 – 7 May 2021 organized by the Lorentz Center@Oort - Leiden, The Netherlands.

The Workshop on Gravitational Wave Astrophysics for Early Career Scientists (GWÆCS) is designed to build networks across different communities and advance the professional development of early career scientists (ECSs). GWÆCS offers a wide perspective on the future of GWs, focusing in particular on the expected scientific gain from forthcoming large-scale experiments and on the common effort needed to successfully complete them. The workshop is entirely online and includes plenary review talks by well-known experts, followed by dedicated discussions aimed at advancing the knowledge and gauging the expectations of ECSs regarding the future of GWs. To complement these scientific objectives, we offer training sessions on soft and transferable skills, education on diversity and inclusion, and awareness about well-being and mental health issues. A preliminary schedule can be found on the conference website.

Workshop Format The workshop will take place online. Nonetheless, in the spirit of Lorentz Center meetings, we dedicate a considerable amount of time to discussion sessions, thus stimulating an interactive atmosphere and encouraging collaborations between participants. This format typically generates extensive debates and enables significant progress to be made within the research topic of the meeting. As the workshop is built on interaction and discussion, we encourage you to participate during the entire week 3-7 May (14:00-18:30 Amsterdam time).

Costs and Refunds The Lorentz Center does not charge registration fees.

Registration If you are interested in participating, please register on the website before March 31st 2021. There will be a maximum of 80 participants, therefore, your registration does not necessarily guarantee participation.
