NANOGrav Science Meeting at at the Univ. of Central Florida, March 4-6, 2020

NANOGrav, the North American Nanohertz Observatory for Gravitational Waves, seeks to detect and characterize low-frequency gravitational waves from distant supermassive black-hole binaries and other sources, through long-term (decades) high-precision timing of an ensemble of millisecond-period pulsars distributed across our Galaxy; the same pulsar-timing datasets also produce supplementary science that ranges from the properties of neutron stars and the content of the interstellar medium, to the nature of relativistic gravity. In the week of March 2-6, the NANOGrav collaboration will be holding a student workshop at UCF on Monday 2nd and Tuesday 3rd March, and a science meeting on Wednesday 4th, Thursday 5th and Friday 6th (half-day) of March

The NANOGrav collaboration holds twice-yearly collaboration meetings. Scientists in attendance will include students, postdoctoral researchers, and senior personnel from across the U.S. and Canada. The meeting’s program consists of presentations and discussion sessions representing the group’s research, training, and outreach goals.

The Student Workshop and Science meeting are both open to interested participants not currently in NANOGrav, but registration is required! Please check out the meeting information and register as soon as possible, at the links below.
