JSI Workshop 2018:
Gravitational Wave Physics and Astronomy Workshop

December 1-4, 2018 -- College Park, Maryland

Posters can be up to 46x46 inches / 116x116 cm.  The posters will be on display in the foyer outside the meeting room, where coffee breaks will take place, for the whole duration of the workshop.  (That is a change from the original plan, in which posters would have started out in a different room.)  Posters can be put up on the display boards starting at 7:30 a.m. on the first day of the workshop (Saturday, December 1); please find your assigned location by poster number.  We will provide push pins.  The reception Saturday evening will feature the posters as well as food and drinks (cash bar).  Please take down your poster at the end of the last coffee break on the morning of Tuesday, December 4 if you want to keep it.

Every poster presenter has been assigned a time during the workshop to give a "sparkler talk", no more than 2 minutes long, showing either one or two slides.  Please adhere strictly to these limits.  Send a pdf file containing your slide(s) to jsi-gwpaw-sparklers at umd.edu at least 6 hours before your assigned sparkler talk time.

We expect to group posters and will assign display locations according to the abstract submission categories:

  • Detected GW events and their properties
  • Searches for compact binary coalescences
  • Searches for continuous-wave GW signals
  • Searches for stochastic GW signals
  • Searches for transient GW signals
  • GW detector performance
  • Multi-messenger astronomy
  • Neutron star properties and astrophysics
  • Binary black holes: origins and astrophysics
  • Cosmological measurements with GWs
  • GW detection in space: science
  • GW detection in space: technology and implementation
  • GW searches and science with pulsar timing arrays
  • Rates and populations of GW sources
  • Astrophysics and GW waveform modeling
