The Physics of Astronomical Transients

Jan 21 - 27, 2012

Venue: Aspen Center for Physics

This meeting will focus on issues related to the physics and discovery of astronomical transients. Topics will range from the extragalactic: detection of gamma-ray bursts, and supernovae in distant galaxies, variable AGN, to the galactic: variable stars, novae, and other cataclysmic events.

We have now set up the webpage for registration and abstract submission:

You may also express a preference for either an oral or poster presentation. All talks will be invited talks, selected by the organizers from the submitted abstracts. Registration and abstracts are due by October 30, 2011.

We look forward to seeing you in Aspen, CO, for a lively scientific program and an upbeat discussion on innovative exploration strategies and novel theoretical work.
