Purpose: To bring together leading researchers in various fields related to the experimental observation and theoretical study of gravitational waves and their counterparts, including neutrinos and radiation spanning the electromagnetic spectrum. By taking an explicitly multimessenger approach we aim to extract the maximum possible information from energetic astrophysical events like supernova explosions and neutron star/black hole mergers.
