The main idea of the Summer School

The school is intended to give a thorough view on gravitational waves. It will cover topics from the theoretical modelling of the sources of gravitational waves to the data analyses of the wave signals.

The school is open to all students and researchers interested in the physics and astrophysics of gravitational waves.


Please register with Mrs. Renate Wagner (wagner AT

For board and lodging in the Physikzentrum 270 Euros will be charged per person (from Sunday 19th evening through Friday 24th afternoon). It has to be payed in cash or with EC-card at the conference office on Monday 20th.

There are no conference fees!
