Hot-wiring the Transient Universe: A Joint VOEvent & HTN Workshop
will be held in Tucson, AZ on June 4-7, 2007. Registration for this workshop is now open at the conference web site:
. This workshop aims to bring together developers and users of the HTN (Heterogeneous Telescope Network) Consortium and the VOEvent (transient alter notification protocol) Working Group to discuss technology, data fusion, and design of systems for the detectiona nd rapid follow-up of celestial transient events.
Anybody interested in time domain or transient follow-up astronomy is
encouraged to participate, not just members of the current VOEvent working
group or HTN consortium. The workshop will take a global perspective from the
point of view of the astronomical observing system at all apertures and
wavelengths with both robotic and human mediated, real and virtual, telescopes
Details and links (and a rather unique astronomy conference poster) available on the workshop website.
