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.
