ANU is organizing the meeting "Science with the Giant Magellan Telescope Integral-Field Spectrograph" at the Carnegie Observatories, 813 Santa Barbara St., Pasadena, CA, USA on 12-13 March 2013.
The goals of the meeting are:
- to inform the US and international communities about the proposed capabilities of GMTIFS and the GMT NGSAO and LTAO systems.
- to ensure that GMTIFS serves the needs of the GMT community by articulating a broad range of science drivers for the instrument.
- to ensure that GMTIFS meets those needs by developing "telescope proposals" for these key science drivers that capture both scientific and technical requirements.
