  1. TMT-Planetary Science Definition Workshop

    TMT-Planetary Science Definition Workshop (Jan. 13-14, 2014)

    PRIMARY OBJECTIVE
    To discuss important scientific problems related to solar system planetary bodies and exoplanets which can can addressed by TMT. To produce a science definition document for the international science definition team to review.
    SECONDARY OBJECTIVES
    To provide the Chinese astronomers and engineers an opportunity to interact based on current development status of the Thirty Meter Telescope (TMT).

  2. TMT-China Science Instrumentation Workshops Followup Meeting

    The follow-up meeting of the Science Instrument Workshop will focus on four major items:
    1. Get familiar with each institute's expertises, experiences, capabilities and interests
    2. Determine which are the main conceptual areas to focus onin MOBIE over the next six months
    3. Determine which are the technical areas to focus on in IRMS and IRIS
    4. Determine the strategic direction for future TMT instrumentation
    During the meeting, we will do our best to come up with a team organizaton, define clear roles for each key personal during the meeting, define major tasks and discuss the schedule.
    The main goal of the meeting is to form a Chinese TMT instrumentation team and go after some real tasks responding to the TMT instrumentation development schedule.
