GraWIToN School 2016
A one week school, addressed to PhD students and young post-docs in scientific disciplines, focused on gravitational wave data analysis, is organized by the INFN (Istituto Nazionale di Fisica Nucleare), Sezione di Roma, at the University of Roma "Sapienza", by the GraWIToN European consortium.
GraWIToN is an Initial Training Network (ITN), funded by European Commission under FP7-Marie Curie Actions for four years, focused on the training of Early Stage Researchers (ESRs) in the gravitational wave (GW) research field. This research field is in an impressive expansion period, thank to the detection in the LIGO interferometers of the gravitational wave signal emitted by the coalescences of two black holes. The whole GraWIToN project with its schools, coherently with the spirit of the ITN Marie Curie Actions, will train young researchers both for a future in the academia and in the private industrial sector, in particularly for the R&D-based companies that are the suppliers of high-tech components and apparatuses.
