    Recent detections of gravitational-wave signals by LIGO and VIRGO detectors from astrophysical sources have opened a new window in to the universe. UW Assistant Professor Krishna Venkateswara will discuss the LIGO detectors and the advances which have made this possible, and describe the most recent detections of a binary black hole merger and a binary neutron star inspiral by the global network of three detectors. Board elections will be held at the beginning of the meeting.
