Big Science with Small Telescopes: The role of 2-4m Telescopes in the Era of the Large and Extremely Large Telescopes

The programme contains a few interesting items, e.g. the following poster:
Another way of discovering exoplanets with small telescopes

Frederic Hessman
Institut für Astrophysik, Georg-August-Universität

The poster shows how the flexibility of remotely operated 1-m class telescopes coupled with the photometric accuracy of 2-m class telescopes has enabled a Goettingen-Texas-Warwick consortium to discover multiple circum-binary planets in several evolved eclipsing binary systems via minute changes in the eclipse timings
