Join me in welcoming a new face and name to our masthead, Co-Editor Mansi M. Kasliwal.
Dr. Kasliwal is well known for her studies of transients, in particular of SNe Ia and white dwarf systems. She is at present a Hubble Fellow and a Carnegie-Princeton Fellow at the Observatories of the Carnegie Institution for Science.
Dr. Kasliwal has co-authored 137 ATels; her first was in June 2007, ATel #1118: Discovery of a Nova in M31 Globular Cluster Bol 111. She has acted as the approving credential for 58 submitted ATels.
We look forward to her contributions on the Editorial Board of The Astronomer’s Telegram!
As an experiment, we are offering the postage-stamp sized box in the upper-right of our webpage, for advertising scientific conferences relevant to the topics on The Astronomer’s Telegram.
To use this space, you should:
- represent the organizing committee of such a conference
- provide either text (140 characters or fewer) or a static gif or jpeg (no larger than 135 pixels wide by 90 pixels high)
- provide a link to the relevant webpage for the conference
- suggest a start and end date for the advertisement to run.
The color scheme of the image should not dramatically clash with the webpage.
Regarding the audience: In a typical month, astronomerstelegram.org receives approximately 10,000 visits; 5,500 unique visitors, of whom 2,200 return multiple times over the month. In order of decreasing frequency, the top ten countries from which our visitors hail are the USA, Japan, Italy, Germany, UK, Russia, Netherlands, France, India and Spain (followed closely by Canada, Australia and China).
Advertisements may be accepted or rejected, run for the full requested period or part of the requested period, at the discretion of the Editors.
Interested parties should send their proposed advertising text or image, along with the desired dates, to the Editor-in-Chief, Robert Rutledge (email@example.com).
We have set a policy about what a correction must include. Check it out here, and tell us what you think!
We’re now using IfThisThenThat (ifttt.com) to publish new ATels directly to your Facebook stream. Just “like” the Astronomer’s Telegram page on Facebook, and they’ll start appearing, with a typical delay of a few minutes.
