The 6th Korea-Japan workshop on KAGRA will take place at the National Astronomical Observatory of Japan on June 20th-21st, 2014.

The purpose of the workshop is to foster the collaboration between Korea and Japan on the development, construction and exploitation of the KAGRA gravitational wave detector.

The workshop will start with a general session including a report on the status of the KAGRA project and on the activites ongoing in Korea. We will also hear about the status of the gravitational wave detector Advanced Virgo.

Specific sessions will be devoted to instrument development, detector characterization and data analysis preparation.

In addition a specific session will be devoted to multi-messengers searches based on coincident analysis between different kind of astronomical observatories and GW detectors. A tour of NAOJ, including a visit of the TAMA300 facility, will be given at the end of the first day.
