The Liverpool Telescope will be holding a session at this year's U.K. National Astronomy Meeting which is to be held in St Andrews, Scotland. Two 75 minute sessions are currently scheduled for the afternoon of Monday, 1st July. The goal of these sessions is to discuss Time Domain astronomy, large-scale monitoring projects, and observations of variables and transients.
A large number of abstracts were received and Oral presentations have now been selected. The TENTATIVE schedule for the meeting is as follows:
|1||Hundertmark, Markus P. G.||University of St Andrews||Robotic discoveries of cool microlenses - highlights from the RoboNet-II microlensing program|
|2||Bours, Madelon||University of Warwick||Eclipsing white dwarf binaries and their orbital period variations.|
|3||Williams, Steven||Liverpool John Moores University||Identifying Nova Progenitors in M31|
|4||Maguire, Kate||University of Oxford||Constraining the explosion physics and progenitors of Type Ia supernovae using Liverpool Telescope light curves|
|5||Habergham, Stacey||Liverpool John Moores University||PTF supernova follow-up and the story of type IIn|
|6||Harrison, Richard||Liverpool John Moores University||Liverpool Telescope early time capabilities in probing prompt phase of GRBs|
|7||Charles, Phil||University of Southampton||X-ray Transients from SSS to Halo Black-Hole Systems|
|8||Lawrence, Andy||University of Edinburgh||Slow blue nuclear transients from PanSTARRS/LT : what are they?|
|9||Altmann, Martin||University of Heidelberg||GBOT - using the Liverpool Telescope for Gaia optical tracking|
|10||Scholz, Aleks||Dublin Institute for Advanced Studies||Time-domain Observations of Young Stars: The era of real-time discovery|
The following Posters will also be presented as part of the LT session:
|1||Lyman, Joe||Liverpool John Moores University||Environment-derived constraints on the progenitors of low-luminosity type I supernovae|
|2||Shaw, Aarran||University of Southampton||A 420 day X-ray/optical modulation and extended X-ray dips in the short-period transient Swift J1753.5-0127|
|3||Darnley, Matt||Liverpool John Moores University||Liverpool Telescope Photometric and Spectroscopic Observations of Galactic and Local Group Novae|
|4||Hodgkin, Simon||University of Cambridge||Transient Astronomy with GAIA|
|5||Davis, Christopher||Liverpool Telescope/LJMU||LT - current status and future development|
Finally, note that Chris Copperwheat will lead a discussion on the Liverpool Telescope 2 project in the session "Future Instruments and Facilities".
