The agenda will comprise on presentation of Gaia and Gaia alerts stream, brief outline of scientific topics to which Gaia alerts can contribute, presentations of existing and future transient surveys and follow-up teams and telescopes. The final scope of the agenda, however, will be decided based on the suggested contributions from the participants.
 
  
 
The workshop's dinner will take place in [http://www.stjohnschophouse.co.uk/ St.John's Chop House] on '''Wednesday''' evening.
