The launch of NASA’s Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer (WISE) in late 2009 ushered in an new era in the study of the solar neighborhood. Its mid-infrared capabilities have proven critical to the discovery of the bulk of the coolest (T_(eff) <1000 K) brown dwarfs, including the new Y dwarfs, and its all-sky coverage lends itself to searches for high proper motions stars using other infrared surveys such as the Two Micron All Sky Survey (2MASS), UKIRT Infrared Deep Sky Survey (UKIDSS), and Visible and Infrared Survey Telescope for Astronomy (VISTA) surveys. This splinter session of the 17th Cambridge Workshop on Cool Stars, Stellar Systems and the Sun was organized to bring together researchers working with WISE data to both identify brown dwarfs and characterize their properties.
