2017 DAWN III Workshop

What’s Next for Gravitational Wave Astronomy?

July 6 & 7, 2017 (Thu & Fri)

Marriott Syracuse Downtown, 100 E Onondaga St, Syracuse, NY 13202

With the observation of the first two confirmed gravitational-wave events, GW150914 and GW151226, during Advanced LIGO’s first observation run, and with the second observation run ongoing, gravitational-wave astronomy has become a reality. The future of this new branch of astronomy will depend critically on the next- (third-) generation gravitational-waves detector.

The two-day program of this workshop will focus on the global strategy for third-generation (3G) gravitational-wave observatories and detectors, and their science case. Of particular interest is the proper coordination between the European effort proposing to build an observatory detailed by the ”Einstein Telescope” design study, and the U.S. proposal of a similar class observatory, named ”Cosmic Explorer”.
