International Conference

«Bursting Universe by Robots Eyes»

devoted to the 15-th anniversary of MASTER project

Lomonosov Moscow State University, SAI MSU,

August, 14-18, 2017

     20 years ago it was realized that robotic observatories boost the capabilities of astronomical observations of non-stationary and short-lived phenomena in the Universe. Such facilities built throughout the world allowed to discover and study the prompt mission of the most powerful explosions the gamma-ray bursts. Hundreds of supernovae were detected as well which enabled to infer the existence of the energy of the cosmic vacuum. Additionally, the robotised telescopes discover thousands of new minor bodies of the solar system and many of exoplanets. 
     The first Russian robot-telescope MASTER was developed in 2002 and installed nearby Moscow. It appeared not only scientifically fruitful but also useful as an effective platform for methodology and technical studies devoted to optimise the use of small robotized telescopes of which the most essential is the unique software needed for automated multipurpose astronomical observations.    
   MASTER was developed In Lomonosov Moscow State University by our team as the fully robotic telescopes, that allows to solve the problems described above. OAO MO "Optica" has mastered the production of such systems.
    This conference is devoted to the 15-th anniversary of MASTER project. It will be  a good opportunity to talk about  the results achieved by Robotic Observatories in next area: GRBs, SNs, CVs, AGN & BL Lac objects, Gravitational Waves  (LIGO/VIRGO)  and High Energy Neutrino Follow Up Electromagnetic Observations - ICECube and ANTARES.
