Burst Group External Collaboration Overview
Overview of Active or Possible External Collaboration
Name of external person(s), group, or scientific collaboration:IPN, Kevin Hurley (Berkeley)
Brief description of collaborative activity (one sentence):There is a long history of fruitful collaboration with Kevin Hurley and the IPN network, marked by joint publications. The formalized collaboration would allow us to share paper drafts at an earlier state with our IPN collaborators and maybe to have access to future proprietrary data if outstanding events happen in S6/VSR2.
Contact person(s) in the LSC+Virgo collaborations:Peter Kalmus, Maxim Factourovich, Szabolcs Marka (and possibly others?)
External contact person(s):Kevin Hurley (and possibly others?)
How does/would this collaborative activity benefit the LSC and Virgo?Allows our collaborators to contribute to the paper draft at an earlier state, therefore, making the publication better. Allow us to have access to information that would be inaccessible otherwise.
Are there other individuals/groups who could provide similar benefits?If so, what is the scientific and/or practical justification for pursuing this particular collaboration?
Very likely. However, this is the most pressing need as we had excellent collaboration in the past and hope to increase scientific output for S6/VSR2.
Are any joint proposals planned to be submitted, e.g. for funding or for telescope time?If so, indicate what will be proposed, to what agency or entity, and who will be listed as the investigator(s).
Not planned at this point.
