Dear All,The programme for the GREAT Plenary (Symposium 3 at the EWASS) is now on-line at http://great.ast.cam.ac.uk/Greatwiki/GreatMeet-PM7.
Because the GREAT wiki will be unavailable this weekend (17+18 May) due to major electrical engineering works on-site in Cambridge - I also attach a pdf of the programme.
Many thanks to all of you who submitted abstracts - I think we will have a productive and interesting meeting.
Looking forward to seeing you in Geneva. Yours, Nicholas Walton (on behalf of the GREAT plenary organising committee)
Nicholas A Walton wrote, on 14/01/2014 14:27:Dear All, This is the first announcement for the next GREAT plenary meeting which will take place within the EAS European Week of Astronomy and Space Science (EWASS) in Geneva, 30 June - 04 July 2014. The Plenary is consituted as a full EWASS Science Symposium (no. 3). The Symposium element will run 30 June - 02 July 2014. Full details can be found at: http://www.great-esf.eu/events/Geneva-Jul14/ - where you will also find the link to the registration page and the current programme and agenda details. Registration is handled directly through the EWASS pages at http://eas.unige.ch/EWASS2014/registration.jsp with earlyregistration closing 15 Apr 2014. (After that date - the registration feerises - details on the registration page). The Symposium nature of the Plenary allows for interested individuals and groups to present new results and plans from activities carried out within the context of the GREAT working groups and related activities. This year, with the successful launch of Gaia (and as I write its finalinsertion into its L2 orbit), will allow for presentations describing theinflight performance of Gaia, and early returns from for instance the Gaia Alerts. At this stage all those wishing to present are invited to signup with some details of their talk or poster idea. There is a page for each of the themed sessions linked from the meeting wiki at http://great.ast.cam.ac.uk/Greatwiki/GreatMeet-PM7. Thus, choose which session most fits your presentation topic and add to the page at: Gaia Performance Evaluation & First Gaia Data: Symposium S3 - Session 2: Focus science - Gaia Transients: Symposium S3 - Session 3 Focus science - Gaia Milky Way surveys and new instrument initiatives: Symposium S3 - Session 4: Gaia science highlights from the GREAT Working Groups: Symposium S3 - Session 5:Focus science - The variable sky and exoplanets: Symposium S3 - Session 6:Focus science - Gaia and Asteroseismology: Symposium S3 - Session 7: Note that the final session 7 covering Gaia and Asteroseismology acts as an introduction to the following EWASS Special Session 2 - Helios and Helium: what is wrong with them ?. All submissions received by Fri 9th May 2014 will be considered, with the final programme being drawn up and published by Mon 19th May 2014. Note - if you are having trouble adding directly to the wiki pages - then send your details by email to great at ast.cam.ac.uk The outline agenda (and eventual full programme) is on the meeting wiki page at http://great.ast.cam.ac.uk/Greatwiki/GreatMeet-PM7. Note - the EAS provide some support to attend the meeting - for details of that please seehttp://eas.unige.ch/ewass.jsp - look under 'Grant Request' for the EWASS2014 meeting. Deadline for requesting that support is 15 March 2014. Looking forward to seeing you all in Geneva later in the year. Nicholas Walton (on behalf of the GREAT plenary organising committee)
