The second GraWIToN school will be held at GSSI (Gran Sasso Science Institute) from 9th to 13th November 2015.
A one week school, addressed to PhD students and young post-docs in scientific disciplines, focused on gravitational wave data analysis, is organized at the Gran Sasso Science Institute (GSSI), in L'Aquila, by the GraWIToN European consortium.

GraWIToN is an Initial Training Network (ITN), funded by the European Commission in the seventh Framework Programme, 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 a 2nd generation of GW detector (GWDs) currently under installation and commissioning, promising the GW signal discovery in few years. 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 2nd 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 first of two schools dedicated entirely to GW data analysis. In the first school we will concentrate 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 (Pulsars, Stochastic Background).
