Wave Data Analysis Workshop
Rome 2-4 December 1999
Department of Physics - University
of Rome "La Sapienza"
I.N.F.N. - Section of Roma 1
The GWDAW 99 workshop is devoted to the gravitational wave data analysis problems.
The program includes a first section based on presentations of the status of the experiments fully focused on data taking and data analysis preparation.
The other sections are based on introductory talks of selected topics followed by extensive and exhaustive discussions.
Short and well focused contributions can be hosted in the context of the discussion of each topic.
Participants who would like to present their recent work are asked to submit abstractselectronically to the discussion leaders with a carbon copy to the secretariat of the workshop: e-mail address of the discussion leaders are given in the program. Some of them may be asked by the discussion leaders to make brief presentations during the workshop.
