SVOM Burst Advocates Spring School

May 15, 2022 - May 20, 2022
The goal of the school is to train the future on-call scientists who will be responsible for the scientific organization of multi-wavelength observations of the gamma-ray bursts detected by SVOM. These scientists are called : the SVOM Burst Advocates. The workshop will begin with a general presentation of the SVOM mission by detailing its operational characteristics. After this presentation, 3 GRB follow-up specialists will clarify the role of the “Burst Advocates" in 3 domains: The simulation of a GRB follow-up based on the Swift experience (BAT, XRT, UVOT). The organization of the short-term follow-up with robotic telescopes on the ground. The organization of long-term follow-up with large telescopes. Then four half days hands-on sessions in small groups will be organized to train the future SVOM BAs. The last day is devoted to the feedback on the hands-on session and the feedback of the Swift BA activities.
This Session is organized by:

Bertrand CORDIER, CEA-Saclay, Gif sur Yvette, France
Jianyan WEI, National Astronomical Observatories of China, Beijing, China
