Science at Low Frequencies III


The Science at Low Frequencies III meeting will take place in Pasadena from December 7-9 (Wed-Fri) 2016. The venue will be the Hameetman Auditorium at the Cahill Center for Astronomy & Astrophysics at Caltech - The meeting follows on from two very successful prior meetings in Tempe, Arizona (2014) and Albuquerque, New Mexico (2015). The format of the meeting will be very similar to those previous meetings, focusing on early science with new and existing low frequency radio telescopes. Registration and solicitation for contributed presentations, both oral and poster, will be opening soon.

Scientific Rationale

A slew of new radio telescopes, as well as substantial upgrades to existing facilities, has led to an explosive growth in capability at low radio frequencies. This increase in capability is driving exciting progress over a range of fields, including high redshift 21-cm signatures of cosmic dawn and the epoch of reionization, pulsars and transients, planetary and exoplanetary magnetospheres, sky surveys, space weather and the Sun, cosmic rays and the ionosphere. This meeting will provide a forum to share and discuss early science results and techniques, as well as to plan a coordinated path forward to next generation facilities.
