Workshop details, including abstract submission categories and a tentative schedule for the scientific sessions, are now posted on the workshop web site, https://jsi.astro.umd.edu/conferences/jsi-gwpaw-2018 . October 31, the early registration deadline, is also the regular abstract deadline (for consideration for a talk, poster or planned verbal comments). The last day to obtain the excellent special rate at the hotel has been extended to November 5. Online registration and abstract submission for posters or verbal remarks will continue through November 18.
For JSI-GWPAW 2018, we are planning a program with ample time for discussion and interaction, covering many of the hottest current and future topics enabled by the detection and detailed study of gravitational waves together with astrophysical modeling and other astronomical observations. Talks will be carefully selected to stimulate discussion and ideas for collaboration, and the workshop will also include tutorials on using data from different gravitational-wave detection projects. Posters will be on display for most of the workshop, and presenters will be able to give 2-minute “sparkler” talks to advertise their posters.
