Anyway, LOFAR is going to be well represented at this IAU GA meeting, and below I list some of the talks on LOFAR science I have noticed on the program. LOFAR talks will appear in several different sessions demonstrating the diversity of science which is already coming out of LOFAR:
SpS4: "New Era for studying Interstellar and Intergalactic Magnetic Fields"
IAUS291: "Neutron Stars and Pulsars"
JD1: "The Highest Energy Gamma-Ray Universe Observed with Cerenkov Telecope Array Projects"
and also some of the technical challenges we are learning to face thanks to the data volumes of LOFAR:
SpS5: "Data Intensive Astronomy".
Here's the full LOFAR programme I've found so far:
