Rob Seaman
Chair, IAU Div B Comm 5 WG Time Domain Astronomy

> Commission 5's new WG for Time Domain Astronomy (WG-TDA) would like to hold its inaugural meeting during the 2015 GA.  The principal focus will be the scientific activities which the WG plans to support and pursue until the 2018 GA.  Included among them are a proposal for a Symposium in 2017 on Time Domain Astronomy, and the preparation of a Case for a new Commission on Time Domain Astronomy.   Our best choice of time is Friday August 7, from 9:00 to 10:00 am.  Members who can attend represent a wide variety of time-domain activities, ranging from transient surveys, 'hotwired' topics, and the involvement of archival data.
