International Summer Research Program in Gravitational-Wave Physics:
Research Experiences for Undergraduates around the world

Korean Gravitational Wave Group (KGWG)
Contact: Hyung-Mok Lee (SNU)
The Korean Gravitational Wave Group (KGWG) was formed in 2003 as a voluntary group to jointly study gravitational wave (GW) phenomena. The group includes members from Seoul National University (SNU), Pusan National University, Hanyang University, the National Institute of Mathematical Sciences (NIMS, Daejeon) and the Korean Institute of Science and Tech Information (KISTI, Daejeon). Since Korea does not have an appropriate experimental facility, we have concentrated on general relativistic numerical simulations. We also participate in the regular research of the LSC through the exchange of gravitational wave experiment data and the provision of research personnel and resources to analyze the detector data for GW signals. We hold bi-weekly meetings and host annual summer schools on gravitational wave physics. These activities are generously supported by the Asia Pacific Center for Theoretical Physics (APCTP) and by grants from the Korean Institute of Science and Technology (KISTI) and from the National Institute of Mathematical Sciences (NIMS). KISTI and NIMS also are supporting us with computer time for the numerical simulations and analysis.
