A one week school, addressed to PhD students and young post-docs in scientific disciplines, focused on gravitational wave data analysis, is organized by the INFN (Istituto Nazionale di Fisica Nucleare), Sezione di Roma, at the University of Roma "Sapienza", by the GraWIToN European consortium.

GraWIToN is an Initial Training Network (ITN), funded by European Commission under FP7-Marie Curie Actions for four years, focused on the training of Early Stage Researchers (ESRs) in the gravitational wave (GW) research field. This research field is in an impressive expansion period, thank to the detection in the LIGO interferometers of the gravitational wave signal emitted by the coalescences of two black holes. The whole GraWIToN project with its schools, coherently with the spirit of the ITN Marie Curie Actions, will train young researchers both for a future in the academia and in the private industrial sector, in particularly for the R&D-based companies that are the suppliers of high-tech components and apparatuses.

The 5th GraWIToN school is part of a set of schools scheduled in the GraWIToN project dedicated to different aspects of GW and astrophysics research: Optics, Simulation, High Power Lasers and Data Analysis. Outreach and project management methodologies are part of this school.

This Data Analysis School will be the second of two schools dedicated entirely to GW data analysis. In the first school we concentrated on the analysis of data for Gravitational Transient Signals (Burst, CBC and EM Follow Up); instead, in the second one, we will focus on Continuous Signals (spinning neutron stars and stochastic background).

The school starts on October 24th, Monday and ends on October 28th, Friday. 

Great importance will be given to ‘hands-on’ work and all the modules of the schools will be integrated with practical sessions.

All the slides, lectures an exercises are available in the Moodle server of the GraWIToN project.
