Registration Instructions for the Gravitational Wave International Committee on

Who should register

Only members of the Gravitational Wave International Committee should register. Members of GWIC3G working groups are not eligible (unless they are members of GWIC as well). The registration requires approval by GWIC administration.

Before you get started

The gw-astronomy service registers into our GWIC forum using a username/password from your university or another place where you have already registered. This simplifies things for both us and for you during everyday use, since we are not creating and managing another username/password pair. Once your registration on is complete, you will automatically be added to the mailing list. We can also set up private and public wiki pages in this wiki for use by GWIC if you want. Because you are registering for GWIC using institutional username/password, it can be confusing. We have tried to make the process as simple as possible, but if you encounter any problems or questions during enrollment or with your gw-astronomy account, please contact (even if you see other help-desk email addresses, please start with this one for help).
