The goal of the conference is to bring together the scientific community working on transient and variable science across all wavelengths. The motivation is to identify the major fundamental scientific questions that can be addressed with the upcoming time-domain survey facilities in the gamma-ray, X-ray, optical, millimeter, and radio wavelengths. We hope to identify synergies between the various surveys and which rapid followup and pointed instruments will be needed to maximize the scientific return. The science topics will be wide and ambitious, covering both Galactic and extragalactic science. The meeting will be in-person with between 100-200 participants. The talks will be broadcast remotely.The meeting will be hosted by the Center for AstroPhysical Surveys (CAPS) and held at the National Center for Supercomputing Applications (NCSA) at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. The meeting is sponsored by CAPS, CMB-S4, LSSTC, NCSA, ngVLA, and the Roman Space Telescope, and STScI.Please save the date: 20-22 June 2023Sign up for announcements here:https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1Ig3jrwNrUfm-NyI0akINnY3lPH08RG8xHvVqGxlpH9M/editRegistration is now open for the “The Transient & Variable Universe” conference to be held 20-22 June 2023 at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign.
