Fifth AMON Workshop
Location: Kapuzinerkloster, Cochem, Germany
Date: 10/12/2016, all day
The Astrophysical Multimessenger Observatory Network (AMON) is a program currently under development at The Pennsylvania State University, in collaboration with a growing list of U.S. and international observatories. AMON seeks to perform a real-time correlation analysis of the high-energy signals across all known astronomical messengers – photons, neutrinos, cosmic rays, and gravitational waves – in an effort to:
Enhance the combined sensitivity of collaborating observatories to astrophysical transients by searching for coincidences in their sub-threshold data;
Enable rapid follow-up imaging or archival analysis of the putative astrophysical sources.
