First Dutch Gravitational Wave Meeting in Amsterdam
Gravitational wave research in the Netherlands is rapidly taking shape and is becoming increasingly diverse. In order to bring together astronomers and physicists interested in gravitational wave science and to inform each other of the current status of the various projects we organize the first Dutch National GW Meeting, to be held on Thursday January 19, 2012 at Nikhef in Amsterdam.
The day will start with a keynote lecture by Prof. Bangalore Sathyaprakash from Cardiff University, after which there will be overview talks on Pulsar Timing Arrays, Advanced Virgo/LIGO, and the new ELISA mission, as well as contributed talks.
The meeting is open to all interested researchers, also from outside the Netherlands.
