The IMPRS organizes the 3rd lecture week on gravitational wave astronomy in Mallorca, in collaboration with UIB

27 September, 2013

This is the third time that the International Max Planck Research School on Gravitational Wave Astronomy will gather in Mallorca more than 30 PhD students from all over the world. This lecture week will take place in the Hotel Iberostar Playa de Muro, from October 6th to 11th, 2013, in collaboration with our Gravitation and Relativity Group at UIB.

The IMPRS is a collaboration between the Max Planck Institute for Gravitational Physics (Albert Einstein Institut), in Potsdam and Hannover, the Leibniz Universität of Hannover and the Laser Zentrum of Hannover. It aims at educating a new generation of researchers in this emerging field.

They take place three times per year with courses on general relativity, numerical relativity, theoretical astrophysics, statistics and data analysis, and different topics of experimental gravitational wave physics. The lectures teach experimental topics to the theorists and theoretical topics to the experimentalists and broaden the knowledge in general relativity for all of them. This way, the PhD students become gravitational wave astronomers knowing all the different aspects of this research field. In addition, in this 3rd lecture week, the students have to design and present a project, which will be evaluated.
