2ND INSTITUTE OF SPACE SCIENCES SUMMER SCHOOL
GRAVITATIONAL WAVE ASTRONOMY
FIRST ANNOUNCEMENT

Place: Institut de Ciencies de l’Espai – Barcelona, Spain, July 2-6, 2018

The Institute of Space Sciences (Institut de Ciències de l’Espai – ICE) is organizing its Summer School on “Gravitational Wave Astronomy” that will be held at the Institute, located at the Campus of the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona, in Bellaterra, only 20kms from Barcelona, from July 2nd to 6th 2018.

The School program covers most aspects of Gravitational Wave Astronomy, from the detection technology to the astrophysics, cosmology and fundamental physics that we can do with gravitational wave detections and their electromagnetic counterparts.

The Institute of Space Sciences will welcome around 30 Master and Doctoral students to attend the Summer School: they will broaden their knowledge on this exciting field as well as get in touch with the other research groups working at the Institute.
