LCO Invites Applications to Time-Domain Astronomy Workshop this Fall


Las Cumbres Observatory is partnering with the LSST Corporation to present a workshop on "Managing Follow-up Observations in the Era of ZTF and LSST." The event will be held at the Carnegie Observatories in Pasadena from September 30 - October 4, 2019.

The workshop will be an interactive introduction to key technologies and observing facilities that will drive time-domain astronomy in the LSST era and a chance for scientists to influence their development. Participants will have exclusive access to a unique proposal opportunity for development mini-grants and telescope time to kick-start their observing programs.

The workshop is open to everyone from all areas of astronomy and the agenda is designed to interest both newcomers and those with substantial experience with alert-based science. Attendance is limited to 50 and travel support will be available. There will be no registration fee.

Applications received by July 15, 2019, 23:59 UTC will receive full consideration.
