General info

The Gravitational Wave Physics and Astronomy Workshop 2021 is a meeting that started in the 90s, originally dedicated to gravitational wave data analysis. In the years the focus has shifted and now GWPAW addresses the most interesting topics in gravitational wave physics and astronomy.

The setting is informal, with only plenary sessions and plenty of time for discussion. The formats of the various sessions will vary, in order to best support the different themes. Posters will be on display for the entire meeting with some extra audio-visual support.

The meeting will be held at the Courtyard Marriott Machsee hotel on the city lake and a 10 minute walk to the beautiful Christmas markets of the old city center.

We hope to be able to hold the meeting in-person and welcome many of you in Hannover this December!

Registration and abstract submission will open soon. Sign-up (orange button above) to get updates and not miss important deadlines.
