Science with the optical-infrared telescopes at CAHA and ORM in the coming decade
Observatorio del Roque de los Muchachos (ORM)
Centro Astronómico Hispano-Alemán (CAHA)
Place:Sede del CDTI, c/ Cid 4 – 28001, Madrid
Organizer:Marc Balcells, Matilde Fernández
We intend to provide a framework for Spanish astronomers to present and discuss science programmes they intend to carry out in the coming decade with mid-size telescopes with Spanish ownership. Most notably at the Observatories of Calar Alto and Roque de los Muchachos, using existing or planned instrumentation. The workshop should serve as a meeting point between scientists, observatory managers and funding agencies, where we gather first-hand knowledge of the use requested from our mid-size telescopes.
Telescope Facilities will outline their plans for the next decade, while users will make presentations focussing on: science plans, instrumentation needs (what instruments are most interesting; what level of diversity is deemed necessary), choices of distribution of observing time (e.g. fraction of time needed for large surveys), and observing modes (visitor vs service modes).
We will also cover aspects such as synergies with larger and smaller telescopes, the advantages and disadvantages of of telescope specialisation into few instruments. The programme has plenty of time for open discussions.
We will combine standard-duration presentations with ultra-short talks (2 transparencies) to maximise the number of presentations that can be fitted in the time available. There will also be space for posters.
