LSST Workshop, Nov 19-21, La Serena, Chile

The beginning of operations of the Large Synoptic Survey Telescope (LSST), scheduled for ~2020, is approaching very fast. The main motivation for this workshop is to address how prepared are we, as Chilean community, for the avalanche of LSST data and more importantly what research we hope to do with these data. With this in mind, we are organizing a two-days meeting in which members of the Chilean community can present and discuss their ideas to make the best use of the LSST data and multi wavelength follow-up studies, ranging from solar system and planetary science to high redshift galaxies and cosmology.

Korea-Chile Workshop 2015, Dec 2 - 3, Santiago

Chile has unique advantages in today’s astronomical research for providing the best observational sites and hosting most of the modern ground-based observatories. In addition, the Chilean Astronomy community is vibrant and rapidly growing. Korea is participating in constructing the next generation of astronomical telescopes and instrumentation, and promoting international cooperation in observational and theoretical research. The collaboration between Korean and Chilean astronomers, in the framework of the recent agreement signed between the Comisión Nacional de Investigación Científica y Tecnológica (CONICYT) and Korea Astronomy and Space Science Institute (KASI), will benefit both communities.

A joint workshop will be held on December 2-3, 2015 at the San Joaquin Campus of the Universidad Catolica de Chile, in Santiago. This will provide an excellent opportunity for exchanging ideas and fostering future scientific collaborations. Registration and more specific information for the workshop will be available at www.sochias.cl. Any astronomers affiliated with Chilean or Korean institutes are welcome to participate in the workshop by presenting their current lines of research.

Deadline for Korean participants is on October 23rd and for Chilean participants on November 5th.

TAO/IAUC Joint Workshop for Optical/IR Astronomy at Cerro Chajnantor - Nov. 19, 2014

Cerro Chajnantor, Chile, Nov. 19, 2014
TAO / AIUC Joint Workshop for Optical/IR Astronomy

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Aim: The University of Tokyo Atacama Observatory 6.5m Telescope is to construct a 6.5 m infrared-optimized telescope at the summit of Cerro Chajnantor, the world's highest site of 5640m altitude. The telescope will see the first light on 2018, with two facility instruments SWIMS (NIR MOS spectrograph) and MIMIZUKU (MIR imager/spectrograph up to 40um). In this workshop, we would like to introduce the project and the instruments, and discuss the collaboration between Japan and Chile in its instrumentation, as well as the expected science cases.
