Outline of the workshop
The main goal of this meeting is to discuss phenomena related to transient sky, in the framework of Gaia (ESA) data. Gaia mission is an all-sky survey, that has been obtaining multi-epoch data, with superb astrometry accuracy, for a range of objects, from solar system to extragalactic ones. Gaia mission can detect rapid to slowly transient phenomena, in scales of seconds, hours, weeks or years.
There will be presentations on Gaia mission updates, including the Gaia alerts and detection issues (models, calibrations, systematics). Scientific program includes sessions on regular variable stars, supernovae and local cosmology, tidal disruption events, gravitational wave events, AGN variability and its impact on the definition of the celestial reference frames. We will also discuss the synergies between Gaia and near future facilities like EUCLID (ESA), PLATO (ESA) and SKA Observatory.
