First Announcement of the GRavitational-wave Astronomy Meeting in PAris (GRAMPA)

The “GRavitational-wave Astronomy Meeting in PAris” (GRAMPA) will be held at the Institut d’astrophysique de Paris, from August 29th through September 2nd, 2016, and will focus on the physics and astrophysics of gravitational-wave sources for existing and future terrestrial interferometers, pulsar timing arrays, as well as future space-borne missions. It will also explore the synergies of these experiments among themselves and with traditional electromagnetic astrophysics.

There is no conference fee, and everyone (especially students/postdocs) is welcome to submit an abstract for contributed talks/posters.
