In gravitational wave data analysis reduced order modeling (ROM) is a collection of techniques for accelerating the evaluation of parametrized models of the gravitational waveform, e.g. the GWs emitted by compact binary coalescences. Reduced order quadratures accelerate evaluation of the likelihood function used in parameter estimation.

The idea for this workshop arose in a recent Face-to-Face meeting of the LIGO Virgo Collaboration Waveform subgroup of the Compact Binary Coalescences group.

The workshop focuses on introducing non-experts to established ROM/ROQ techniques and building new models (with a view towards LIGO/Virgo’s upcoming observing runs). There is also dedicated time for experts to get together and discuss how to advance current techniques for frontier problems.
