Gravitational Wave/ISIS Research Group Meeting: Open questions in signal analysis for gravitational astronomy

ISIS-OG GdR meeting: open questions in signal analysis for gravitational astronomy

The first observations of advanced LIGO and Virgo mark the advent of a new gravitational astronomy, with great potential for discovery in many fields from fundamental physics to astronomy and cosmology.

This will be developed in the coming years during future and longer-term data collection using new ground-based instruments, such as the Einstein telescope, and in space with the LISA mission.

The scientific production from these observations is based on a range of analytical methods for signal extraction, estimation of astrophysical parameters and characterization of instrument noise. The objective of this meeting is to bring together the French community working on gravitational astronomy, and that of signal specialists in order to address the signal analysis issues still open in this field.

We will have three tutorial presentations: an introductory presentation and two others on two themes selected for the day. They will be accompanied by presentations and contributed posters.

The two themes considered for the day are:
1. Machine learning
2. Bayesian estimation methods
and their potential applications in the field of gravitational astronomy.

The day will take place on October 8 on the campus of the Université Paris Diderot (Paris 13è, Bibliothèque François Mitterand metro station). Pierre Gilles de Gennes Amphitheatre, level -1 of the Condorcet building of the UFR de Physique, 4 Rue Elsa Morante 75013]

It will start at 9:30 am and end at around 5:00 pm.
