Bursts, Pulses and Flickering: wide-field monitoring of the dynamic radio sky

12-15 June 2007
Kerastari, Tripolis, Greece
Exotic and transient astrophysical phenomena reveal the violent and capricious nature of the universe. Wide-field and all-sky monitoring in the X-ray, gamma-ray, and more recently optical, bands has already led to a wealth of discoveries such as pulsars and gamma-ray bursts which probe extreme realms of physics and yet were not anticipated prior to their discovery. Radio astronomy, traditionally a high-angular-resolution, arrow-field enterprise, is entering a period of renaissance on the road to the square kilometre array (SKA), in which several different routes to wide-field or even all-sky monitoring in this band will be achieved for the first time. Coupled with this, the past few years have seen the discovery of new classes of radio transient, such as the RRATs and the Galactic Centre Radio Transient. This workshop will, for the first time, combine the astrophysics of rapid radio variability with the techniques of wide-field transient searches, in anticipation of an exciting decade ahead of us.
