1. GW astrophysics

Title: GW astrophysics: from LIGO to PTA



Gravitational Wave (GW) astrophysics is a broad topic covering a wide spectrum of GW

frequencies (from kHz to nanoHz), diverse detection strategies (from ground based, 

spaceborne detectors to Pulsar Timing Arrays), and various theoretical/computational tools 

for waveform generation (from perturbation methods to Numerical Relativity). Since the 

first GW detection of a binary black-hole merger event, a unique widow to the nature has 

been opened: the fundamental laws of gravity, the astrophysical mechanisms and environments 

of compact binary formation, and the physical processes that cannot be probed in other ways. 

In combination with traditional EM observations,  multi-messenger astronomy has shown 

its power in solving long-standing astrophysical problems and is expected to play a growing role in the future. In this mini-symposium, we expect to bring experts and junior researchers 

together to discuss all these exciting problems. 




1.   Compact binary formation  (all binaries that are detection targets in different frequency bands )


2.   Waveform modeling (waveform of compact binaries of various mass ratios)


3.   Multi-messenger astrophysics (GW+EM/neutrinos/cosmic rays)


4.   GW detection as a unique probe (to fundamental laws of physics and to long-standing problems in cosmology/astrophysics) 


5.  Future GW detectors  (beyond LVK/LISA/PTA)
