Both workshops were successful and with very interesting discussions about the future of the Einstein Toolkit and our plan for the next year of our TCAN international collaboration funded by NASA. Many young researchers joined both meetings indicating a strong potential growth for the field of numerical relativity applied at astrophysical sources.
Yesterday I attended the “INAF after GW150914” meeting in Rome. I was asked to give a short theoretical overview on electromagnetic counterparts of gravitational wave sources (pdf slides can be downloaded here). The focus of the meeting was to better understand the important role that the Italian Astrophysical Research Institute (INAF) can play in the gravitational wave era. The whole meeting was broadcasted live and you can watch it (in Italian) on INAF YouTube channel. Below instead you can listen to my talk (in Italian).
