The Iberian Gravitational Waves Meeting is an international conference set up yearly since 2011 by different groups around the Iberian Peninsula with interests in Gravitational Waves. The series of meetings have been associated to the Spanish Network on Gravitational Waves (REDONGRA). After the cancelation of the meeting in 2020 due to the covid-19 pandemics, in 2021 took take place online organised by the Astronomy and Astrophysics Department (DAA) and the Mathematics Department (DM) of the University of Valencia. In 2022 the meeting will take place, for the first time in the University of Minho, in the city of Braga, Portugal, organized by Gr@v and Center of Physics of the University of Minho and University of Porto.
The goal of this series of meetings is to bring together researchers working in Gravitational Waves with the aim at promoting collaboration and synergies among them. It also serves as a way of keeping track of recent advances in the Iberian gravitational wave community. The meeting covers all aspects of gravitational waves, including theory, data analysis, experiments and multi-messenger astronomy.
The scientific program consists of plenary sessions with talks by invited speakers and selected contributed talks by participants. You can request a contributed talk during the registration process. Registration is needed regardless of whether you attend the meeting online or in person.
The meeting will have a hybrid format with the possibility of attending in person or online through Zoom. The physical venue for the meeting will be the Complexo Pedagogico II, Room B2, in the University of Minho.
