IAU S339: Southern Horizons in Time-Domain Astronomy
Stellenbosch (near Cape Town), South Africa
November 13-17, 2017

Dear Colleagues,

Registration is now open for IAU Symposium 339 (Southern Horizons in
Time-Domain Astronomy), to be held in Stellenbosch, near Cape Town
(South Africa) on November 13-17, 2017. Early-bird registration will
close on August 15.

Abstracts for talks and posters should be sent via the registration form
(http://iaus339.ast.uct.ac.za/registration/) by August 15, because the
space for contributed talks is very limited. Later submissions will
still be accepted, and will be reviewed as poster contributions.

Suggestions and offers to hold "workshops" during the three afternoons
of the conference week (Monday, Tuesday and Thursday) are strongly
encouraged. The Symposium website (http://iaus339.ast.uct.ac.za) lists
those already received. Workshop topics can be narrow or broad, or
anything in between, rather like "Birds of a Feather" sessions, and are
best organized as primarily round-table discussions. Suggestions need to
identify at least one organizer.

Applications for IAU travel grants can be made on the form here
and must reach the conference organizers
(chairs_sh at timedomainastronomy.net<mailto:chairs_sh at timedomainastronomy.net>)
by June 15.

Stellenbosch is a small university town, and offers ample accommodation
spanning a range of prices. Participants need to make their own
bookings, and can do so on-line. Check the web site for details.

Looking forward to seeing you at IAU S339 in Stellenbosch !

Your co-Chairs,

Patrick Woudt (Cape Town, South Africa)
Mark Sullivan (Southampton, UK)
Rob Seaman (Tucson, USA)
Elizabeth Griffin (Victoria, Canada)
