July 17th - 21st, 2023


Premier International Conference on Gravitational Waves

Theme: The Broad Reach of Gravitational Wave Science

Explore the Gravitational Wave Frontier

Welcome to the 15th Edoardo Amaldi Conference on Gravitational Waves!

Amaldi15 is the premier forum for the fields of gravitational wave science and gravitational wave detection. Following the first detection of gravitational waves in 2015, followed by the first observations of the collision of two neutron stars in 2017, the field has been expanding rapidly to exploit this new window on the Universe.Held biannually, the Amaldi meetings are more important than ever before for bringing together the diverse and emergent research associated with gravitational waves from across the world. They are organized under the auspices of the Gravitational Wave International Committee (GWIC).The conference addresses the full range of gravitational wave science, including future detectors. Emphasis will be placed on the connection between gravitational wave science and the fields of observational astrophysics and multi-messenger astronomy, and progress in modelling waveforms arising from various astrophysical sources.

Meeting Information

Conference Programming

Amaldi15 will feature a diverse range of content from world-renowned researchers. From invited Keynote speakers to poster presentations, conference attendees will be able to enjoy a broad range of topics.The daily blocks of programming have been spaced out so that everyone can attend the majority of the sessions at convenient times.Abstracts are no longer being accepted.

Honoring the Life of Dr. Amaldi

This conference series is named after Dr. Edoardo Amaldi, a pivotal figure in twentieth-century nuclear and particle physics who contributed more than 200 scientific publications. He was an early pioneer of the experimental hunt for gravitational waves from the 1970s until his untimely death. His greatest contribution, however, was as a true statesman of science, playing a key role in the process of realizing the dreams of large transnational scientific projects among European countries, most notably CERN.
