First Circular for GWPAW 2013
Gravitational Wave Physics and Astronomy Workshop
17-20 December, 2013, Pune, India
The next Gravitational Wave Physics and Astronomy Workshop (GWPAW) will be held in Pune, India from 17-20 December 2013. It will be hosted by the Inter University Centre for Astronomy and Astrophysics (IUCAA), Pune. GWPAW was formerly called GWDAW. It is a general meeting on the physics and astronomy of gravitational waves, techniques for their detection, and interpretation of data and results. The primary purpose of this early first circular is to apprise prospective attendees of the meeting dates so that they may take them into account, e.g., when they plan for their year-end travel. More information about this meeting will be posted soon at: http://www.iucaa.ernet.in/~gwpaw
Most participants that are not Indian Citizens or holders of the OCI / PIO card will require an Indian visa to visit Pune. The second circular, which will be announced this summer, will contain instructions on visa procurement. It will also contain important deadlines for registration, abstract submission, and accommodation.
On behalf of the Local Organizing Committee I am looking forward to welcoming you in Pune in December 2013.
