UK JCMT Users meeting: Current and Future Science with the James Clerk Maxwell Telescope

Cardiff University

5-6 September 2016

Introduction

The James Clerk Maxwell Telescope

This meeting will allow the UK astronomy community to share details of the exciting science being done with the JCMT, in which the UK continues to play a major role thanks to the efforts of the consortium of 17 UK Universities who have pooled resources and obtained STFC funding to work with the East Asian Observatories (EAO) now running the JCMT. This includes both taking part in the large programmes ranging from galactic protostellar studies to deep cosmology surveys, in partnership with the EAO members and Canadian scientists, as well as individual PI-led programmes.

The aim is also to discuss possible future developments of the capabilities of the observatory, and whether the UK community wishes to remain in the partnership beyond 2017.

The meeting is open not just to current consortium members but also to other groups or individuals who wish to hear about what is being done with JCMT and/or who may wish to consider joining the consortium in any future bid for continued involvement. There is no fee for attendance, but you are asked to register your intention to attend and also indicate if you would like to give a presentation, with a title if so. Tea/coffee/water and lunch will be provided. Limited travel funds may be available to assist early career researchers to attend.
