SNEWS Meeting @ Neutrino2020


Zoom see email or slack for the password
Alec Thomas Habig (University of Minnesota (US)), Clarence Virtue (Laurentian University), Erica Caden (SNOLAB), Kate Scholberg (Duke University), Rafael Lang

A meeting of the SuperNova Early Warning System project, adjacent to the Neutrino 2020 meeting.  With the change to a virtual conference, this meeting will also be virtual.  Keeping to almost the same dates, it will be Friday and Saturday mornings, June 19 and 20.

This workshop is to work on getting SNEWS into the modern era of Multi-Messenger Astronomy, a "SNEWS 2.0", as first discussed at Laurentian University last June.
