(Draft Agenda)
Line 1: Line 1:
The topics this year include:
*Status of Gaia - year of the launch!
*Gaia alerts - how they work, what is the expected yield
*Supernovae, microlensing, novae, CVs, AGN flares, and other targets for Gaia Alerts
*Arrangements for the alerts follow-up and verification campaign in early 2014
*Follow-up strategies
*How to get involved in Gaia alerts follow-up networks?
*Current/planned multi-wavelength transient surveys, including X-ray channels
*Reports from tests on transient follow-up
*Presentation of new potential partners for the follow-up network
