To the Transient Universe and Beyond

LIA-ERIDANUS

Second Workshop

México, 2020

Puebla, México, 31 May to 4 June, 2020

 

COLIBRÍ is a new Franco-Mexican 1.3 meter telescope that will be installed in the Observatorio Astronómico Nacional in México in 2021. To strengthen and broaden collaboration between the two scientific communities around COLIBRÍ, France and México have created the ERIDANUS International

Associated Laboratory (LIA). In the  2nd LIA ERIDANUS Workshop we will discuss:

  • Use of COLIBRÍ to study gamma-ray bursts detected by SVOM and other satellites.

  • Use of COLIBRÍ to study the transient universe beyond GRBs, including neutrino and gravitational-wave sources, AGNs, exoplanets, variable stars, and other sources.

  • Current and future theoretical models that give context to COLIBRÍ observations.

  • The scientific goals and design of the spectrograph for COLIBRÍ.

 

The 2nd workshop follows on from the very successful 1st workshop held in Toulouse in June 2019 (https://indico.in2p3.fr/event/18260/overview).
