> Dear Colleagues,
> This is a reminder about the next Gaia Science Alerts workshop in 2015. The registration closes on Sep.30th.
> Gaia was launched in December 2013 and began science operations in
> August 2014. While the first superb astrometric data will be delivered
> to the community in coming years, Gaia Photometric Science Alerts has
> been publishing alerts since October 2014. So far, about 300
> transients have been found, among them many supernovae, cataclysmic
> variables, candidate microlensing events as well as rare and exciting
> discoveries (e.g., the eclipsing AM CVn Gaia14aae). Many Gaia alerts
> have been followed-up spectroscopically and photometrically, with the
> Gaia Follow-up Network alone collecting nearly 10,000 photometric data
> points for Gaia triggers.
> We would like to gather together again this year in Liverpool (UK) on
> 10-13 November 2015 to talk about the first year of the Gaia Science
> Alerts programme. Topics for the meeting include:
> - Discussion of the extensive follow-up observations carried out over
> the past year.
> - Using these data to aid automated classification within the
> AlertPipe software.
> - The new Gaia Alerts publisher and interfaces.
> - Science cases for Gaia Science Alerts.
> - The next steps: how to exploit improved performance, and organise
> the follow-up.
> - Interfaces to robotic telescope networks.
> - Feedback from follow-up into Gaia Alerts.
> - Outreach Opportunities.
> - Interfacing to other Alert streams.
> - Dedicated hands-on sessions:
> - Introduction of Gaia Alerts to new follow-up partners.
> - Tools for processing and analysing follow-up photometry and spectroscopy.
> As with previous meetings, we are happy to announce the support of the
> EC OPTICON network for this year’s workshop (under WP11: Time-domain
