The gathering aimed to foster networking within the ORP's time-domain arm, provide updates on surveys and follow-up facilities and promote synergy among network members working on various science cases at different wavelengths. A highlight was the unveiling of the updated BHTOM version 2 (http://bhtom.space), the ORP Time-Domain WP's flagship product.
BHTOM serves as a coordination platform for time-domain astronomy, where researchers submit observing requests for their targets. It is connected to a global network of nearly 100 telescopes that respond to these requests, submit observational data, and have it automatically processed and calibrated. The Malta workshop included hands-on sessions and workshops on using this new system, ensuring attendees left with practical knowledge and enhanced collaboration opportunities.
