The May ATUC Science meeting has been postponed till October.
Note the general ATUC May meeting has been delayed till further notice
ATUC Science Day - Time Domain Astronomy
ATNF Lecture Theatre
New, sensitive widefield radio telescopes are opening up new parameter space for discovery and monitoring of variable and transient phenomena in the radio sky. Studies in the time domain are therefore an area of expanding interest in the astronomical community, including the ATNF user community. It is timely at this point to examine current progress using existing telescopes in astrophysical studies of variability.
This one-day workshop will include presentations and discussion sessions encompassing a broad range of topics such as:
- Searches for fast transient events
- Supernovae and gamma-ray bursts
- Stellar variability
- Lunar Cherenkov pulses due to high energy neutrinos
- Galactic and extragalactic jet phenomena
- Scintillation and extreme scattering events
We will explore the challenges of making measurements on the various timescales involved, as well as commonalities in approaches to data handling and analysis for different types of phenomena.
|Date:||To be announced. October 2011|
|Venue:||Lecture Theatre, ATNF Marsfield (directions, accommodation)|
