The recent detection of gravitational waves from a merging binary neutron star system, along with follow-up observations in the full frequency band of the electromagnetic spectrum mark the dawn of multimessenger astronomy. In celebration of this wonderful milestone in astronomy, ICTS is organizing a half-day scientific event. The event will feature several talks summarizing the gravitational and electromagnetic observations, accessible to general scientists and scientifically inclined public.
