Virtual Iberian Gravitational Wave Meeting 2020

Oct 19, 2020

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. This year, the regular meeting, that was taking place last May in Valencia, had to be cancelled due to the covid pandemic.

To fill the gap of this year we are organising a Virtual Iberian Gravitational Waves Meeting. The two-day meeting is a reduced version that will include three invited speakers and a series of short talks describing the activities of the different groups working in gravitational waves in Spain and Portugal. The GW community in Spain and Portugal has been growing very fast and there are many new groups starting to take interest into GWs. The idea of these group talks is to meet each other and find points in common that could lead to new collaborations, synergies and funding opportunities. The conference will also host the meeting of the REDONGRA network.

The meeting will take place virtually. Instructions to connect to the meeting will be communicated to those registered participants before the meeting.

* Invited speakers:

  • Michela Mapelli, University of Padova
  • Tsvi Piran, Hebrew University of Jerusalem
  • Xavier Siemens, Oregon State University

* Organising committee: Pablo Cerdá-Durán (University of Valencia), Sascha Husa (University of the Balearic Islands), Mario Martinez (Institute for high Energy Physics (IFAE)), M. Ángeles Pérez-García (University of Salamanca) and Carlos Sopuerta (Institute of Space Sciences (ICE-CSIC))
