The NASA Physics of the Cosmos (PCOS) Program Office is organizing a TDAMM Initiative Workshop. The goal of the 3-day workshop, to be held August 22–24, 2022, in the Annapolis (Maryland) area, is to identify and prioritize the top science questions for Time Domain and Multi-Messenger Astrophysics (TDAMM) that need to be addressed to implement the recommendations of the Astro 2020 Decadal Report. NASA invites US and international members of the ground and space science community and of the astronomy and physics communities to attend the workshop and contribute to its final product, a publicly available report with findings for the NASA Headquarters Astrophysics Division.
Example questions the workshop will address include:
* What are or will be the most pressing scientific questions for TDAMM in the next several years?
* Which capabilities (top level) are needed to address them?
* How well does the current mission fleet address them?
* Which avenues of inquiry will be most ripe for discovery in the next few years?
* What collaboration between the ground and space can be done to maximize the science?
Note that this workshop is focusing on sources and science, not on specific proposed missions or experiments.
Registration is open now and abstracts for contributed talks are due by May 16th.
