Physics for the Future: International Workshop: 27-29 September 2012
Physics for the Future: International Workshop on the Australian Gravitational Wave Observatory
University Club, University of Western Australia, 27 September 2012


An international workshop will take place at UWA from 27-29 September 2012 to discuss the international proposal to develop and construct a gravitational wave detector in Gingin, Western Australia. The detector would form part of an international gravitational wave detector array involving more than 1000 physicists around the world. The workshop is designed to bring policy makers, politicians, scientists and engineers together to discuss the project and to help formulate a roadmap for the $200M-scale project.
