The Metrewavelength Sky - II : Celebrating the 90th year of Govind Swarup and the 1st year of the upgraded GMRT
18 Mar 2019 - 22 Mar 2019 • Pune, India
Abstract:
The Giant Metrewave Radio Telescope (GMRT) has recently undergone a major upgrade (the "uGMRT'' project) that has significantly improved its scientific capabilities, opening up a wide range of interesting science areas to the radio community. The first uGMRT results are now beginning to appear and the uGMRT will be formally opened in 2019. March 2019 will also mark the 90th birthday of Govind Swarup, who conceived of, and led, the original GMRT project. To celebrate both of these events, the National Centre for Radio Astrophysics of the Tata Institute of Fundamental Research (NCRA-TIFR) will host an international conference on radio astronomy in Pune, India, over March 18 - 22, 2019.

IPTA2019@Pune — International Pulsar Timing Array Meeting 2019
10 Jun 2019 - 21 Jun 2019 • Pune, India
Abstract:
The Xth International Pulsar Timing Array (IPTA) workshop will be held in Pune, India between June 10 to 21, 2019. The IPTA consortium consists of established Pulsar Timing Array (PTA) efforts, that include the European Pulsar Timing Array (EPTA), the North American Nanohertz Observatory for Gravitational Waves (NANOGrav), and the Parkes Pulsar Timing Array (PPTA) as well as the emerging efforts like the Indian Pulsar Timing Array (InPTA), South African Pulsar Timing Array and the Chinese Pulsar Timing Array. The IPTA consortium aims to detect gravitational waves using an ensemble of millisecond pulsars located in our Galaxy.

The meeting is aimed to i) foster close interactions between researchers working on individual pulsar timing array (PTA) experiments ii) provide detailed hands-on training for young researchers on the nuances of gravitational wave data analysis and ii) to develop links with the wider gravitational wave community. A status update from the established PTAs and the emerging PTAs will be presented along with detailed discussions on various data sharing and data combination issues relevant for the IPTA consortium. During the first week (the "student week"), experts in the field will share their knowledge and organize hands-on exercises to explore the data-sets and data challenges. During the second week, the active researchers in the field will help to advance the frontiers of our understanding through presentations and discussions on the road ahead that include various challenges and strategies. Apart from invited and contributed talks, updates from IPTA working groups and panel discussion on policy issues regarding the sharing of data and resources are included in the science program. A one day visit to upgraded GMRT is part of the program.
