In this year 2015 the gravitational wave (GW) observatories LIGO will be backon-line, followed by the French-Italian Virgo and in the following years by theJapanese KAGRA and the Indian INDIGO. It is then expected that this network ofdetectors may observe GWs from one to few hundreds solar massblack holes. The waveform modeling from such signal is sufficiently accuratethat it can be envisaged that from a detection of GWs from coalescing binariesthe detailed dynamics of the binary can be reconstructed.On the astrophysical side, this will have an enormous impact onunderstanding the dynamicsof field binary system formation, as well as give an invaluableinsight into dense stellar systemsas dense clusters and galactic nuclei.The workshop will bring together experts from rather different fields: stellardynamicists, observers from optical and X/UV-rays, astrometry, data analysts,general relativists and numerical modelers of different regimes (from kiloparsecdistances to parsecs down to the horizon of a black hole).The workshop is born from the need for a place where the distinct communitiesinvolved in X-ray astronomy, gravitational wave including electromagneticcounterparts, might gather. While these communities - theoretical andobservational astrophysics, general relativity, cosmology and data analysis -have made significant collaborative progress over recent years, we believe thatit is indispensable to future advancement that they draw closer, and that theyspeak a common idiom.We expect that the new window onto the Universe that GWs are going to open, toyield new and unexpected results. It is clear that exchanging of ideas andcompetences among fields that up to now have been loosely related is the keyfeature enabling the new, young generation of researchers to read acrossdifferent fields, as the opening of the Gravitational Wave astronomy erawill require.
