Dear Colleagues,

Apologies if you received this multiple times. We would like to share the following announcement for a summer school.

A few years ago, the Physics Department at Sapienza University of Rome inaugurated the Amaldi Research Center (ARC), an interdisciplinary Center for Gravitational Physics and Astrophysics.

One of the ARC missions is to train a new generation of students and researchers with strong interdisciplinary skills. With this purpose, we are organizing a summer school about the ARC research lines, which include:

– Gravitational physics and astrophysics
– LIGO-Virgo gravitational-wave data analysis
– Multimessenger astronomy
– Quantum technologies for gravitational-wave detection
– Material science for 3G interferometers
– 3G gravitational-wave lab

The school will be held in Paestum on September 5-9, 2022. The venue will be the Hotel Ariston, a beautiful location within walking distance from the seaside and near the famous archeological site of the ancient Greek city of Paestum. We will host 10 lecturers and about 40 (mostly PhD) highly-motivated students. More information is available on the school website.

For each lecturer we schedule a 2-hour slot to give an overview of the field and highlight the main latest results.

List of invited lecturers:

Gianpietro Cagnoli (Lyon U., FR)
* Sarah Caudill (Utrecht U., NL)
Giancarlo Cella (Pisa U., IT)
Elisabetta Cesarini (INFN, Rome2, IT)

There is a limited number of participants and a 200 euro participation fee, which covers double-room, half-board accommodation at the venue.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact us.

Please feel free to share this announcement with potentially interested students.

Looking forward to hearing from you,

All the best,
