Frequently Asked Questions

  1. What do LSC/LVC/LVK mean?
  • LSC stands for LIGO Scientific Collaboration, and it’s a group of scientist working on LIGO detectors. LVC is an old acronym for a collaboration of LSC and Virgo Collaboration. Since 2019 KAGRA joined the collaboration, so the new joint name is LVK (LSC + Virgo + KAGRA).
  1. What is the relation of LAAC to LSC & LVK?
  • LAAC is the LSC committee. However, on the LVK meetings we welcome everyone to the LAAC events.
  1. What can LAAC help me with?
  • You can address us with any question about your academic life, and we would help you find the information or connect to a person.
  1. What is the job of a LAAC member?
  • We meet twice a month on a telecon to discuss current projects.
  • We organize poster sparkler sessions, tutorials and social events for LVK meetings.
  • We provide various information either in direct response to questions, or when it is of a general interest.
