The Heterogeneous Telescope Networks Consortium and
The IVOA VOEvent Working Group announce
A joint workshop, the third of each series, to be held:
on the campus of the University of Arizona in Tucson
Monday June 4, 2007, through Thursday June 7
The astronomical time domain ranges from solar physics and solar system objects to objects and processes at galactic and cosmological distances. Transients arrive via electromagnetic radiation, gravitational waves, neutrinos and other particles. Discoveries are made via spacecraft and by ground-based surveys, through automatic pipelines and the Virtual Observatory, with robotic telescopes and by the human eye. Meeting the challenges of time domain and transient astronomy demands a new logistical framework for carrying out the practice of astronomy.
A strong interdisciplinary agenda will cover technology, methods and experimental design for the detection and rapid follow-up observations of celestial transients, as well as data fusion to create knowledge about the underlying astronomical phenomena. Refereed proceedings will be published as an issue of Astronomische Nachrichten.
