Gravitational Wave Orchestra - GWO
Current and future stochastic gravitational-wave background probes in multple frequency bands.
September 8-9 2022 at Université catholique de Louvain, Belgium.

A stochastic gravitational-wave background is the persistent signal that comes from overlapping, unresolved independent sources. These signals are individually undetectable, but detectable as a collectivity via their common influence on multiple detectors - the musical companion to the binary black hole or binary neutron star soloist. This hum will provide insights into our universe’s early history, allowing us to listen to the first-ever song of the universe in multiple frequency bands. The Gravitational Wave Orchestra 2022 will act as the ideal backdrop to listen to the various aspects of the gravitational-wave symphony.

During this two-day workshop, we will hear from:

  • Joseph Romano (TTU, Lubbock)
  • Irina Dvorkin (IAP, Paris)
  • Vuk Mandic (UMN, Minnesota)
  • Chiara Caprini (APC, Paris)
  • Stephen Taylor (Vanderbilt U., Nashville)
  • Giulia Cusin (U. Geneva & IAP, Paris)
  • Sanjit Mitra (IUCAA, Pune)
  • Tania Regimbau (LAPP, Annecy)
  • Carlo Contaldi (Imperial College, London)
  • Sébastien Clesse (ULB, Brussels)
  • Josquin Errard (APC, Paris)
  • Boris Goncharov (GSSI, L’Aquila)
  • Guillaume Boileau (U. Antwerpen)
  • Aditya Parthasarathy (MPIfR, Bonn)
  • Alex Jenkins (UCL, London
  • Kamiel Janssens (U. Antwerpen & ARTEMIS, Nice)

on a broad range of topics including:

  • Review on stochastic gravitational-wave backgrounds.
  • Theoretical development in stochastic gravitational-wave background modelling.
  • Most updated results from the LIGO-Virgo-KAGRA collaboration and Pulsar Timing Arrays.
  • Future probes and strategies using: Einstein Telescope, Cosmic Explorer, and LISA.

Along with this, we will have a poster session and lightning talks. You are strongly encouraged to submit a poster abstract on stochastic gravitational-wave background-related research. Details can be found on the abstract submission page.

Registration and abstract submission deadline: August 05, 2022
