LIGO Engagement

Please see the CTSC blog for the latest updates on our engagement with LIGO.

Fall 2012 - Spring 2013

Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO)

The LIGO Scientific Collaboration (LSC) is over 800 people strong with member groups from around the world, but with especially strong links to groups in the United Kingdom, Germany, Australia, and Canada. The LSC enjoys a data sharing agreement with the Virgo Collaboration centered in France and Italy and we expect over time to develop a closer collaboration with peers from the KAGRA project in Japan. CTSC, LIGO and the Open Science Grid are collaborating on establishing an international identity federation spanning Europe, Australia, Canada, and Japan to ease barriers to and facilitate more efficient collaboration in support of LIGO's scientific mission.
