Profs Read and Smith attend GWPAW2013 in Pune, India
GWPAC and Department of Physics faculty members Jocelyn Read and Josh Smith attended the Gravitational Wave Physics and Astronomy Workshop (GWPAW) held December 17- 20, 2013 at the Inter-University Centre for Astronomy and Astrophysics (IUCAA) in Pune, India.
Both were invited to present on aspects of gravitational-wave astronomy, Jocelyn on "Measuring the Neutron Star Equation of State," and Josh on "Detector characterization to prepare for the first gravitational-wave detections."
The workshop was a gathering of 173 gravitational-wave scientists from around the world, and was held at a particularly exciting time, as India and the United States are strengthening their collaboration in gravitational-wave astronomy. We're looking forward to future Indo-Fullerton gravitaitonal-wave research.
Many thanks to the scientific and local organizing committees, particularly the meeting chair, Sukanta Bose (IUCAA & Washington State U.).
