The University of Geneva's Department of Astronomy will host a workshop dedicated to exploring the computing and data requirements for the Einstein Telescope. This event is jointly organised by the Einstein Telescope e-Infrastructure Board (EIB) and Work Package 8 (WP8) of the Einstein Telescope Preparatory Phase (ET-PP) project. Participants will delve into data analysis requirements from third-generation gravitational wave observatories while also reviewing the computing and data models employed by related physics experiments and astronomical observatories. A special focus session will be dedicated to working on a key deliverable of WP8: a comprehensive report outlining the computing and data requirements of the Einstein Telescope Observatory. This workshop aims to advance our understanding of the computing infrastructure required by the third-generation gravitational-wave observatories and will bring together experts from various fields to foster collaboration and exchange of ideas.
For in-person participants, a registration fee of 100 CHF* must be paid by October 11th, 2023, via bank transfer to the account below. Please include the note "ET-PP workshop - YOUR NAME" in your bank transfer. The registration fee will cover coffee breaks, lunches and the workshop dinner.
