The 13th International LISA Symposium

features a program dedicated to gravitational wave astrophysics, with particular emphasis on sources that can be observed in the millihertz band by the Laser Interferometer Space Antenna (LISA), the current status and unique challenges in gravitational theory and analysis for LISA sources, and the latest updates on the development of the LISA mission.

The LISA Symposium is a three-day online conference with a mix of live and pre-recorded presentations, free of charge, and open for everyone.

Gravitational Wave International Committee
the official patron of the 13th International LISA Symposium
The Gravitational Wave International Committee (GWIC) was formed in 1997 to facilitate international collaboration and cooperation in the construction, operation and use of the major gravitational wave detection facilities world-wide. It is associated with the International Union of Pure and Applied Physics as its Working Group WG.11. Through this association, GWIC is connected with the International Society on General Relativity and Gravitation (IUPAP's Affiliated Commission AC.2), its Commission C19 (Astrophysics), and another Working Group, the AstroParticle Physics International Committee (APPIC).
The LISA Consortium
committed to supporting the LISA mission
The LISA Consortium is a collaboration of self-funded and independent researchers who proposed the LISA mission to ESA in 2017. Following mission selection, the Consortium reorganised to plan and execute teamwork to enable LISA to be technologically and scientifically successful. The consortium currently consists of ~1000 members with a broad range of expertise from instrumentation, data analysis, astrophysics, cosmology and fundamental science, united by the same scientific goal and code of conduct.
