Workshop to discuss science/technical aspects of AtLAST
ESO Headquarters, Garching, Germany, 17-19 January 2018

A two-year EU-ALMA study on the scientific merit for – and technical implementation of – an Atacama Large Aperture Submm/mm Telescope (AtLAST) is underway. We now invite the community to join in establishing working groups on science and technology aspects of AtLAST. The workshop will be a crucial forum to collect insights and feedback, and commit to a single vision for producing a single dish facility.

The science and technology working groups on AtLAST will conclude the study in early 2019 with a public report including recommendations for organizational and financial paths to building an international collaboration. This event has received funding from the European Union Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No. 730562 [RadioNet].
