This event is to introduce various Gravitational Wave (GW) related activities in Taiwan and to promote to form a unified collaboration, by focusing on instrumentation, data analysis, and science related to GW.

Special invited guests:

  • The PI of KAGRA, Prof. Takaaki Kajita (Nobel Laureate in Physics of 2015)
  • A senior scientist from LIGO, Prof. Rick Savage
  • We strongly encourage researchers and students who are interested in GW physics to participate the workshop.
