CAASTRO / Swinburne to host FRB workshop

On February 14-16, 2018, Swinburne University of Technology will host an international workshop entitled “FRB2018: Finding and Understanding Fast Radio Bursts“. The workshop will cover a broad range of FRB instrumentation and science, but with a particular focus on directions over the coming ~5 years, as the number of detected FRBs expands rapidly and their localisation becomes commonplace.

The key themes of the workshop will be:

Understanding FRB progenitors and their host environments.

This requires:
Real-time detection and localisation with interferometers.

Can we achieve these goals more effectively via:

Synergies between current facilities and/or identifying opportunities for existing facility upgrades?

Leading FRB researchers from FRB collaborations world-wide have been invited to present recent results and future directions, offering an opportunity to build and extend collaborations.

Registration is now open.
