Gravitational Wave Open Data Workshop Study Hub

LIGO, Virgo, and KAGRA have now completed three observing runs (O1, O2, and O3), with all observational quality strain data available to the public. These observations include over 90 detections of compact object mergers. With more detector upgrades in progress and future observing runs planned, it is a very exciting time in the field!

This Open Data Workshop is the 6th in a series of workshops that began in 2018. Participants will receive a crash-course in gravitational-wave data analysis. The workshop includes lectures by data analysis experts, hands on experience with software tutorials, and a data challenge designed to test your new skill in GW data analysis.

This year we are hosting an in-person study hub for the 6th Open Data Workshop at KIAA. We think that working on tutorials together, in-person, is a critical element for a fun, productive experience. Please join us and expand your knowledge and skills in the exciting field of gravitational waves.
