TMT Science and Instrumentation Workshop
''Astronomy in the TMT Era''

October 16-17, 2013 in Tokyo

TMT-J invites you to join us for a two-day workshop "Astronomy in the TMT Era" in Tokyo, Japan to explore the potential of TMT in astronomy. TMT is an international project to build and operate a 30 meter telescope located on Mauna Kea. The program will consist of talks and discussions exploring TMT science with first-light and future instruments. We anticipate a broad range of topics on new results, new interpretation and theory, discussing with clear implication the best usage of TMT "in the TMT era". The second half of Day 2 will focus on the 2nd generation instruments, which will further bring exciting TMT capabilities to meet diverse scientific needs. Each section will open with one or two invited reviews, followed by contributed talks. This workshop followed by the TMT SAC meeting on Oct. 18. is an opportunity to bring together the Japanese astronomical community to the TMT project and promote the development of international collaborations of science and instrumentation.

Participation will be limited to 120 attendees. Please be sure to confirm your interest in attending the Workshop by registering through the registration form by September 20, 2013.

Topics to be covered:

  • - Cosmology
  • - Galaxy formation & evolution, AGN
