Convener: Prof. Innocenzo M. Pinto – University of Naples “Federico II”, LIGO-Virgo-KAGRA Collaboration email@example.com
The convener is working in the field of gravitational wave detection experiments since many years, as an active member of the LIGO-Virgo-KAGRA (LVK) Collaboration. Co-author of the first Virgo proposal and paper (NIM A289 (1990) 518), and of the GW150914 “discovery paper” (PRL 116 (2016) 061102), recipient of the Breakthrough Prize in Fundamental Physics (2016) and the Gruber Cosmology Prize (2017) as a member of the LIGO Collaboration, he has been appointed Fellow of the Optical Society of America in 2017 “For fundamental contributions to thermal noise reduction in the mirror coatings of the LIGO interferometric gravitational wave detectors, and for original contributions to the science of Electromagnetics”.
Organization: Dr. Micol Benetti, Dr. Marco Coraggio, University of Naples “Federico II” and SSM.
