ICTS Summer School GW Astronomy 2021

Jul 05, 2021

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


  • 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)

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. A basic understanding of general relativity and cosmology is a prerequisite for the courses.
