Gravitational-wave astronomy was born with the LIGO/Virgo observations of black hole mergers. However, a new revolution is in the making, when the space-based LISA mission flies. LISA promises to observe all the visible universe, and will see supermassive black hole mergers, orbiting white dwarfs, phase transitions in the early universe etc. The capabilities of LISA to do fundamental physics are immense.
LISA@Copenhagen is the next in-person meeting of the Fundamental Physics Working Group of the LISA Consortium, which will be held at the Niels Bohr Institute in Copenhagen from August 9-11, 2023. This meeting will connect the working group more directly to the Science work packages, such that there is a unified view of the community and of the inner workings of the consortium.
The meeting will be held at the Niels Bohr Institute in Copenhagen. The Niels Bohr Institute carries an important legacy in physics and is one of the leading institutes in theoretical and experimental physics. Copenhagen is a very enjoyable and beautiful city, and as the capital of Denmark, there are plenty of wonderful things to do and it is easy to reach. The entire Nordic region has plenty to offer and is a remarkable place for summer vacations.
There is a very limited number of seats available, as the meeting will take place in the legendary Auditorium A of the institute (where Bohr, Heisenberg, Einstein, Ehrenfest and many, many others met to establish quantum mechanics). Register now!
