The 12th International LISA Symposium will be held in Chicago, Illinois, Sunday 8 July 2018 through Friday 13 July 2018 at the Westin Chicago River North.

The week will feature a program dedicated to gravitational wave astrophysics broadly, but with special emphasis on sources that can be observed in the millihertz band by LISA, the current status and unique challenges in gravitational theory and analysis for LISA sources, and the latest updates on the development of the LISA mission.

The Symposium is hosted by the Center for Interdisciplinary Exploration and Research in Astrophysics (CIERA) at Northwestern University, and co-sponsored by the American Astronomical Society.

Abstract submission will be available in the spring, opening in late March.

We look forward to seeing you in Chicago this summer!
