The Eventful Universe

March 17-20, 2010
Tucson, AZ

The Eventful Universe explores the time-axis in observational phenomena. Topics will range from the extra-galactic: detection of gamma-ray bursts, and supernovae in distant galaxies, variable AGN, to the galactic: variable stars, novae, and cataclysmic events, to the solar system: the detection of near-earth asteroids and KBOs. A common theme will be understanding the best observational strategies for detecting, characterizing, and following up on all transient events. The meeting format will include several “break-out sessions,” to promote discussion and exploration of individual classes of objects or detection methodologies.

This is one of two symposia in Tucson in March, 2010. The second one, From First Light to Newborn Stars happens from March 14-17. March 17th brings together both symposia in the context of the role played by our national observatory in furthering scientific progress both in the past and future.
