IPTA is a world wide collaboration, made of the contributions of three continental consortia:
EPTA in Europe, PPTA in Australia and NanoGRAV in the US. Its primary goal
is to detect gravitational waves in the Nanohertz regime using radio
pulsar timing observations.
The European part of the collaboration is supported by RadioNet since its
foundation in Autumn 2006. This year the annual IPTA conference takes
place in France. As usual, it starts with a Student Workshop – 26-30 June, 2017- preparing the
new generations of scientis to both the technics of pulsar timing and
gravitational wave analysis.

of 30 students and post-docs.
