The origin of Fast Radio Bursts

December 3 – 13, 2018

The workshop will focus on the nature of Fast Radio Bursts (FRB), theory and observations.
FRBs are dispersed millisecond-duration pulses observed at the GHz frequencies.
First reported in 2007 by Lorimer et al., FRBs are still poorly understood.
Recent progress in observations start to shed light on the nature of FRBs. It is expected that new observations, as well as new instrumentation, will keep fueling the FRB revolution.
