The Virgo EGO Scientific Forum (VESF) is glad to announce the 1st edition of the VESF School on Gravitational Waves Data Analysis, which will take place from February 10th to February 13th, 2010 at the site of EGO in Cascina (Italy).
The purpose of this VESF school is to complement the traditional VESF School on Gravitational Waves, which will take place in the Summer of 2010, providing a practical, hands-on introduction to the methodologies and techniques for data analysis.
The school welcomes young physicists and engineers; they will be introduced to the main characteristics of the data produced by interferometric detectors like Virgo, and will learn about basics of signal processing and GW data analysis. The school comprises short theoretical lessons and long training sessions, allowing the students to apply Virgo analysis software to real data with embedded test signals.
The deadline for applications is Jan. 15th, 2010 and further information can be found on the VESF website
