Training INSTITUT-IphU First MaNiTou Summer School on Gravitational Waves

      -      FR  -  EN

MaNiTou Summer School - collaboratively organized by scientific communities involved in Gravitational Waves, from 3 French locations in Southern France, namely Marseille, Nice and Toulouse, thus the MaNiTou name for the school. The school will take place Jul 4-8th in Marseille this year, in the Luminy Campus of Aix Marseille Université (CPPM and Hexagone), in the beautiful Calanques National Park. It will be held in English.

Goals of the school
The school will cover the emerging field of gravitational wave detection and of its scientific exploitation. Following their discovery by the LIGO/Virgo consortia, many other gravitational wave detections are expected at the existing and future gravitational antennas. They will open up a new window of exploration, sometimes unique and sometimes complementary to what other messengers such as electromagnetic radiation (radio, IR, visible, UV, X-rays, gamma rays) and neutrinos can reveal of the physics at work in our Universe. The objective of the school is to provide the students with a solid introduction to most aspects of this interdisciplinary field in accelerated expansion :-)

The school is open in priority to Master and PhD students, and also to young or not so young scientists who would like to get better acquainted with Gravitational Waves.
