With the gravitational-wave detection of binary black holes, binary neutron stars and neutron star-black holes, and the multi-messenger observation of GW170817 a new chapter in astronomy has begun.
As the LIGO-Virgo-KAGRA observatory network enters a new phase of science observations at progressively higher sensitivity - the fourth observing run is currently ongoing - preparatory activities are well underway to develop the next generation observatories that will be in operation in the 2030s.
They will represent a major transformation in gravitational-wave surveys providing large number statistics and opening up a vast discovery space. The impact of these gravitational-wave observatories, working in concert with telescopes covering the electro-magnetic spectrum, will be transformational for astronomy, cosmology, nuclear physics, and fundamental physics.
The goal of this one-day meeting is to bring together experts from across the astronomy and astrophysics community to explore opportunities and avenues of research that will be enabled by the next generation gravitational wave observatories
