GW-EM Workshop

June 14 – 26, 2020

The detection of gravitational waves (GWs) and light from a neutron star merger launched a new era in multi-messenger astronomy. Even though much was learned from the event, several open questions remain. This workshop, set to take place a few months after the conclusion of the third advanced GW-detector observing run, aims to discuss the results of that run, plan the observations and modeling required for the era of design-sensitivity operations, and prepare for what promises to be an exciting future in astronomy and physics.
