KAGRA Face to Face Meeting

9th Face to face meeting: Feb 13 - Feb 15, 2014 @ ICRR, The University of Tokyo

Scope of the meeting

The face-to-face meeting of KAGRA Collaboration will be held at Kashiwa campus of the University of Tokyo. The venue of the meeting is 6th floor in Kashiwa Research Complex (neighbouring building of ICRR). The objective of this meeting is to let all collaboration members know the current status of KAGRA and is to exchange information among subsystems for condcuting the project. Besides of these, we need to sort out all schedules of subsystems and to establish global installation plan with combining all manpower for the practical installation start in this summer. In pararell with this discussion, we will consider the membership of KAGRA for practical work of installation & commissioning, where manpower of collaboration members needs to be integrated as much as possible, and we will also discuss about co-authorship for possible publications in future.

In this meeting, we have a sub-meeting of the board of international representatives in the evening of the first day, 13th, February and social banquet on the second day, 14th, February.

I hope that we can fix the installation plan with letting all members’ mind be coherently aligned in the succesful operation of KAGRA in 2015.
