This year’s ICTS summer school on gravitational-wave (GW) astronomy will be held from 05 to 16 July 2021. Due to the ongoing COVID pandemic, the school will be held online. Applications for the school are now open. This year’s school will focus on the stochastic GW background from the early universe as well as produced by astrophysical sources.

– Stochastic GW background from the early universe (Shi Pi, Chinese Academy of Sciences & Kavli IPMU, Japan)
– Stochastic astrophysical foreground from compact binary mergers (Vuc Mandic, University of Minnesota, USA)

Each course will feature 5 lectures and 5 tutorials, 90 mins each. The school is primarily meant for graduate students and postdocs in gravitational physics and related fields. A small number of highly motivated senior undergraduates can also be considered. Basic understanding of general relativity is a prerequisite for the courses.
