In order to foster more regular interaction between scientists at the MIT LIGO Lab and the MIT Kavli Institute, we are starting a new weekly afternoon tea-time series from 4:00 PM to 5:00 PM on Wednesdays, to be hosted at the LIGO Lab (NW22-268). The General Relativity Informal Tea-Time Series will be a forum for regular discussion between the gravitational-wave experiment, theory, and astrophysics communities at MIT and beyond. Every week, we aim to have an informal discussion of recent research topics. Occasionally, visitors will be invited to give a presentation.
If you, or a visitor or colleague of yours would like to give a GRITTS seminar about one of the topics of interest for the GRITTS (such as -- but not restricted to -- gravitational waves and multiwavelength follow ups, general relativity, GW detectors, or big data), please contact us at gritts-info AT ligo DOT mit DOT edu. We are also on Twitter @GRITTS_MIT ! Follow us by clicking on the link on the left of the page for the latest news and forthcoming events!
This is the current schedule, for Fall 2015.
We plan on meeting every Wednesday, from 4:00 PM to 5:00 PM.
