Workshop Description

The Institute for Gravitation and the Cosmos will host the inaugural workshop of the Astrophysical Multimessenger Observatory Network (AMON) on October 1-2, 2011. AMON will perform a real-time correlation analysis of the high-energy signals across all known astronomical messengers - photons, neutrinos, cosmic rays (specifically neutrons), and gravitational waves - in an effort to enhance the combined sensitivity of the collaborating observatories to astrophysical transients and enable rapid follow-up imaging.

The workshop will commence at 9:00 AM Saturday, October 1 in 321 Whitmore, with sessions covering multimessenger theory, participating observatories, ongoing multimessenger programs, and cyber infrastructure. More information about the AMON project is available at
