2nd MaNiTou summer school on gravitational waves (MaNiTou 2023)

The school will cover the emerging field of gravitational wave detection and of its scientific exploitation. The goal of the school is to provide the students with a solid introduction to most aspects of this interdisciplinary field in accelerated expansion.

The school is open in priority to Master and PhD students, and also to young or not so young scientists who would like to get better acquainted with Gravitational Waves.

The school is limited to 40 participants. Master and PhD students can be accommodated at a CROUS residence free of charge (cost paid by the school).
More information and registration are available on the school web site :
