A new astronomy based on gravitational waves is born with the first advanced LIGO and advanced Virgo discoveries and will develop with the third observation run O3 that will take place in 2019.
Bulk data from past observation runs and data snippets around the discoveries are made publicly available at gw-openscience.org, along with associated software libraries. This workshop is intended for students or more senior scientists that wish to learn about these data and softwares in order to conduct research in the field of gravitational wave astronomy.
The workshop will offer participants a hands-on introduction to working with software tools that allow to access and process open gravitational wave data. Participants are expected to bring a laptop computer. Some previous experience with python programming and/or signal processing will be helpful, but not required.
The tentative program inserted below includes a mixture of lecture style presentations and hands-on programming exercises.
