The NZ Gravity Group is pleased to announce the first
NZ Summer School on Gravitational Waves
To take place at the University of Auckland on 13-15 February, 2023.
The school is aimed at advanced undergraduate and postgraduate students in New Zealand and Australia and will provide a gentle introduction to contemporary gravitational wave research.
There will be no registration fee, morning/ afternoon tea and lunch will be provided. All participants are expected to arrange their own travel to Auckland. We can provide some support for travel and accommodation costs. As funds are limited, preference will be given to students enrolled at New Zealand universities.
