Spinning Coalescing binaries Workshop

14th, 15th September 2006

A workshop on spinning coalescence binaries will be held in Cardiff University, physics and astronomy department, on the 14th and 15th of September 2006. This workshop is part of the ILIAS initiative and will discuss the state of the art on the search of gravitational waves emitted by spinning coalescing binaries as well as future work which can be done within the ILIAS network.

This meeting is part of the WG2 meetings and funding forms can be found on the ILIAS pages. The forms should be send to Guanluca Guidi and Ik Siong Heng .
