Newest Results from LIGO O3: The LIGO and Virgo gravitational wave observatories have recently published results from the first half of their third observing run (O3) increasing the total number of detected compact-object binary mergers to 50 while discovering some unexpected pairs. This fast-turnaround, mini-workshop will bring together local and international researchers, in person and virtually, to review these new results and discuss what opportunities they present. We hope this will foster new ideas and collaborations between groups.
