Fast radio bursts (FRBs) are an enigmatic class of extragalactic radio transients currently attracting great scientific interest. ASKAP (Australian Square Kilometer Array Pathfinder) and FAST (Five-hundred-meter Aperture Spherical radio Telescope) are at the forefront of this fast-moving field, with groups in both Australia and China interpreting the data to study both FRBs themselves and to use them for cosmology.

This workshop will bring together the multitude of researchers working on all aspects of FRB science from Australia and China. Sessions will have PhDs and ECRs present their latest results, with discussion workshops to tackle key problems in FRB science. In addition, the workshop will provide opportunities for areas of collaboration and potential joint projects.

Topics

  • Recent observational results
  • Population studies and FRB cosmology
  • Host galaxies and multi-wavelength follow up
  • Progenitor modelling and radiation mechanisms
  • Hardware, FRB search algorithms, upgrades, and future instruments
  • Other updates
