    Title: Science with Small Telescopes

    In the era of large and extremely large telescopes, the role of small telescopes is still important in astronomical research. Detection of exoplanets and studying low surface brightness galaxies are two prominent area of research activity that these small telescopes can contribute to the community these days. The aim of this workshop is to gather specialists and discuss how astronomers can benefit and learn from the small telescopes. The topics of the workshop are:

    – Exoplanets
    – Low Surface Brightness Galaxies (LSBGs)
    – Variable Stars
    – Transient Objects (Supernovae, Near Earth Objects, Asteroids)
    – Science from Small Facilities

    Speakers:

    – Edward Francis Guinan (Villanova University)
    – Nematollah Riazi (Shahid Beheshti University)
    – Behnam Javanmardi (IPM)
    – Mohammad Akhlaghi (Lyon Observatory)
