The Laser Interferometer Space Antenna (LISA) mission is a space-based gravitational wave interferometer planned for launch in the mid 2030s. It promises major advances across a wide range of fields in physics and astronomy. Canadian researchers in particle physics, astronomy, gravity, instrumentation, spacecraft, computing, and other related fields are well poised to play an important role.
This year’s workshop will focus on synergies between LISA and other priorities in Canada’s astronomy and particle astrophysics program, including other missions, theory initiatives, and multi-messenger astronomy. It will also feature a presentation on a proposed Canadian hardware contribution to LISA.
The workshop is particularly geared for Canadian researchers who may be interested in getting involved with LISA and would like to learn more about current and potential Canadian contributions to LISA. No previous experience with gravitational wave astronomy is assumed, but you can find an introductory overview in talks from 2021’s LISA Canada workshop.
All are welcome to attend - this workshop is intended to be accessible to researchers at every career level. Please register by August 24. There is no fee for registration.
Note: all times in the schedule are listed in Pacific Daylight Time (PDT)!
PDT = EDT - 3 = CEST - 9
