With the near-future increased detection rates, we need to devise ways to manage the observational follow-up resources and to test and inform theoretical models for the nature of the observed TDE emission and their expected rates. The Aspen meeting will be used to lay groundwork for coordinating follow-up work (UV, optical spectra, radio, X-ray, late-time host galaxy, continued monitoring for repetitions...) and decision trees (concentrate all guns on a few brightest ones, or do less on more?) as well as bring together theorists to further the models on the TDE emission mechanism.
