Is this site for you?

This page is intended for members of the International Gravitational-Wave Observatory Network (IGWN) community only, meaning members of KAGRA, the LIGO Laboratory, the LIGO Scientific Collaboration (LSC), and the Virgo Collaboration.

If you are not a member of one of these groups, the resources describe in these pages will likely not be available for you.

This site attempts to describe the following

  • what grid computing resources are available, and how to use them,
  • what data are available, and how they were generated,
  • what software is available, and how to use it.
