FRB Day 2019

A lot of exciting progresses have been made in the Fast Radio Burst (FRB) field and here in Toronto we have a decent-sized group of researchers actively working on FRB-related projects (CHIME, ARO, VLBI, to name but a few). For these reasons, we thought it would be timely to host an FRB Day in Toronto, that will be jointly organized by CITA and the Dunlap Institute

We invited four speakers within North America to each give a 45-min seminar. Two of the speakers were from the observational side and the other two were from the theoretical side.

The FRB Day is open and free for everyone, including undergraduates and graduate students, and may draw interested people from nearby institutes such as Waterloo, PI, York and McMaster. It is an occasion where we can learn about the latest development in the FRB field through talks, followed by a panel session where questions and ideas could be exchanged.
