Understanding the Nature and Multiwavelength/Multimessenger Characteristics of TeV Unidentified Objects

Date: June 4-5, 2008 (2 days)

Location: The Pennsylvania State University

Host: Center for Particle Astrophysics

Dear Colleague,

This is the 2nd announcement about the focused workshop "Understanding the Nature and Multiwavelength/Multimessenger Characteristics of TeV Unidentified Objects," to be hosted by the Center for Particle Astrophysics at Penn State University on June 4-5, 2008. The primary purpose of this 2nd circular is to bring your attention to the web site we have set up, which provides hotel/travel information and will allow you to register (free) and to submit an abstract for a presentation. Please visit this web site for information and then confirm your attendance and desire to present a talk, even if you have already done this verbally or by email. This will allow us to organize more effectively.

The web site to visit for information is:
http://igc.gravity.psu.edu/events/tev_workshop/

The discussion will be broad and will include properties of SNRs, pulsars, plerions, binary systems, blazars, etc. If placed within the context of the TeV unidentified source properties, these discussions could be used to ascertain the best methods for going through the list of TeV unidentified sources and solving the mysteries. We have now moved from an era when TeV sources were sparse and were found primarily from promising X-ray catalogs to an era in which TeV catalogs are being filled by interesting TeV survey sources that may be relatively more quiet at other wavelengths.

The workshop will be aimed at leading to teams of people working on:

  1. Theory/modeling framework and firm predictions regarding the multiwavelength and multimessenger properties of a variety of potential TeV unidentified source classes, and
  2. follow-up observations and strategies with a variety of instruments (existing and near-term) to discriminate between different source class possibilities.

We look forward to seeing you all at the workshop. Thanks for helping to make it productive.

Sincerely,
Abe Falcone, Ty DeYoung, Peter Meszaros
