Shaping E-ELT Science and Instrumentation

ESO Garching, February 25-March 1, 2013


Goals of the workshop
The E-ELT project office is organising a four-day workshop to gather community input for the E-ELT instrumentation plan. The workshop will address the instruments to follow on from the two first-light instruments. The first two days will be dedicated to presentations of new or updated E-ELT science cases, shaping the definition of the upcoming instrument suite. The next two days call for ideas for instrumentation and technologies matching the E-ELT instrumentation plan. In particular, the project aims at gathering input on the science case and requirements for a mid-infrared instrument, a multi-object spectrograph, and a high spectral resolution spectrograph.

Registration for the workshop will open in July 2012 with a deadline for abstract submission of October 2012.

Workshop dates: Monday, 25 February 2013 noon - Friday, 1 Mar 2013 noon.
