When

2013, November 8-9 (Friday-Saturday)



Where

KITP, UCSB, Santa Barbara
(please refer all logisitcal questions to the SOC / LOC, rather than the KITP staff)

Parking is available on the top outdoor deck of Lot 10. You need to go to the electronic kiosk and select VIP, which will allow you to park all day up there for $10.




Agenda

The aim of the workshop is to discuss science puzzles which have emerged from PTF observations, or that potentially can be answered using PTF specific experiments. Examples include the nature of calcium rich SNe, the SLSN family and type Ia progenitors from Galactic studies.
