MAVIS Science Workshop, Online, July 5-9th, 2021

Published: 07 May 2021

MAVIS (MCAO Assisted Visible Imager and Spectrograph) is a forthcoming facility instrument for the ESO’s VLT AOF (Adaptive Optics Facility, UT4 Yepun) currently starting Phase B. With its unique parameter space, MAVIS is foreseen to cover broad science cases, from solar system objects to high redshift galaxies, as highlighted in the current MAVIS Science Case. This workshop aims at bringing together the scientific community and discussing the key science cases where MAVIS will have a strong impact due to its unparalleled capabilities, as well as identifying the areas where it will provide unique synergies with existing and forthcoming facilities such as ELTs and JWST. The workshop is an opportunity to engage the community and push forward the MAVIS project.  

Given the current pandemic situation, the meeting will be fully online. To optimize the scientific outcome of the workshop and overcome limitations due to different time zones, the meeting will have pre-recorded contributions, available in advance, and live sessions mainly focused on discussion and interaction among participants.

Registration and abstract submission are now open. The deadline is 7 June 2021 (there are no registration fees). For any questions, do not hesitate to contact Richard McDermid or Giovanni Cresci.
