Aspen Winter Conference on Gravitational-Wave Astrophysics with Populations, to take place in Aspen, CO from February 9-15, 2019.
LIGO and Virgo have revealed an active and exciting gravitational-wave sky. A new observing run commences in early 2019, and estimates suggest up to order ten binary neutron-star mergers and order a hundred binary black-hole mergers might be found with a year of observation. Gravitational-wave astronomy will be faced with a new challenge: accommodating the oncoming deluge of transient detections. This workshop will focus on the analysis of populations of gravitational-wave sources, with implications across a diverse array of astrophysics including general relativity and fundamental physics, stellar populations and their history, cosmic nucleosynthesis, post-merger jets and kilonovae, and the neutron- star equation of state. We will discuss methods and opportunities associated with the future of gravitational-wave astronomy.
