AMON will present two talks at the IceCube Particle Astrophysics (IPA) Symposium, which takes place in Madison, Wisconsin, May 8-10, 2017. On May 9, Azadeh Keivani and James DeLaunay will present two AMON talks in the Multi-messenger session at 16:30-18:00 pm. Azadeh will talk about AMON Status Report: Realtime Alerts and Archival Studies and Jimmy […]
On April 14, 2017, Azadeh Keivani was invited to give a talk at the American Museum of Natural History. In this talk, Azadeh introduced AMON, its science case, design elements, partner observatories, and the status of the project to the bright scientists at the museum’s department of astrophysics. Among the audience, there was Galileo Galilei, listening […]
On Monday April 10th, Jimmy DeLaunay was invited to talk about AMON at the Primordial Universe and Gravity (PUG) seminar series, hosted by the IGC. He gave an overview of the motivations for and current status of multimessenger astronomy, including details about the search for cosmic particle accelerators and IceCube’s recent discovery of the diffuse […]
On April 7, 2017, Azadeh Keivani was invited to present AMON at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center. Her talk focused on the recent results of AMON realtime and archival analysis. The presence of Swift and Fermi scientists in the audience created interesting discussions about followup observations of the two NASA satellites as well as brainstorming ideas for […]
AMON will hold two mini-workshops this year: the first one follows the “Physics and Astrophysics at the Extreme Workshop” at Penn State on Dec. 3, 2016 and the second follows the “HAP Workshop: Monitoring the Non-Thermal Universe” in Cochem, Germany on Dec. 10, 2016. To find more information about these workshops, visit the 5th AMON Workshop page.
In a recent publication, the Pierre Auger Observatory is looking at the tilt of the cosmic ray shower axis from the vertical that causes an asymmetry in the response of the tanks to look for the shower development history and in particular the mass of the primary cosmic rays. “We exploit this feature to extract an average […]
Here is a short article in the September issue of Physics Today about AMON, entitled “Spotting coincidences in astronomical signals”. Find the article here or read it in the hardcopy of Physics Today this month.
AMON will present three papers at the 34th International Cosmic Ray Conference in the Hague, the Netherlands. The contributions are one talk and two posters. Below you can find information about our papers. If you will be attending the ICRC, come to our presentations to learn more about AMON’s status and the most recent news. “AMON: […]
