Announcements

Registration is open

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 to the co-chairs  [chairs_sh@timedomainastronomy.net] 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 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 chairs_sh@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)
