AST3 Exoplanets Workshop

Nanjing, China

10-11 October 2013

 
 

In 2013 May, the first data from the Chinese-led Antarctic Survey Telescope (AST3) were brought back for analysis. An international team of astronomers met in Tengchong in late May to discuss preliminary results and plan data processing strategies. A summary page of some of the data processing from that meeting can be found here.


This workshop is intended to be a focused meeting of the AST3 Australia-China Exoplanet Working Group. The overall objective is to present the results from the first data release and make plans for follow-up analysis and observations.


Aims

  1. 1. Results and lessons learned from 2011 winter data. Calibration techniques, data issues, candidate selection processes.

  2. 2.Observing strategies for the next winter season. Candidate follow-up plans, allocation of tasks for next steps.


If you want to give a talk on exoplanet science using the AST3 data, please send a title and abstract to Rob Wittenmyer.
