An RAS Specialist Discussion Meeting organised by Stephen Smartt (QUB)*, Paul O'Brien (Leicester)*Contact: Astronomical surveys seem poised to enter a new era when non-photonic messengers such as gravitational waves, high energy cosmic rays and neutrinos will be detected. We propose a cross-disciplinary meeting to bring together researchers working across these fields to ensure the fledgling collaborations that are springing up are given chance to blossom and to continue UK leadership. This meeting builds on a successful Royal Society meeting in 2012.
