CTA-UK Science Meeting
The Cherenkov Telescope Array (CTA) will be the major global observatory for very high-energy (VHE) gamma-ray astronomy over the next decade and beyond. Covering a photon energy range from 20 GeV to 300 TeV, CTA will have a wider field-of-view, higher sensitivity, and better angular resolution than any instrument that has gone before. Its two arrays will have unprecedented capability for surveys, imaging of gamma-ray sources and time-domain astrophysics.
CTA’s science remit is wide, and includes:
Michael Burton, Armagh Observatory Rob Fender, University of Oxford Martin Hardcastle, University of Hertfordshire Siong Heng, University of Glasgow Werner Hofmann, MPIK, Heidelberg Jon Lapington, University of Leicester James Matthews, University of Cambridge Martin Ward, Durham University Roberta Zanin, MPIK, Heidelberg
Posters on topics relevant to CTA are very welcome. Please e-mail Paula Chadwick with the title of your poster.
The registration fee is £70, to include the conference dinner on the 21st April and tea, coffee & lunches on both days. Follow the link here: https://www.dur.ac.uk/conference.booking/details/?id=1505. The registration deadline is April 8th 2020.
