This event has ended. Please join us for the Futures III meeting in Berkeley, CA, Summer 2017.
Talks from this meeting are now available for viewing.
Funded by Associated
Universities, Inc. (AUI) and the Kavli Foundation, the second in a series of
three conferences for the astronomical community to broadly discuss potential
U.S. futures for radio-millimeter-submillimeter science in the 2020’s and beyond will
be held 3-5 August 2016 at the Renaissance Baltimore Harborplace Hotel in Baltimore, Maryland.
The 125 attendees at the
first of these conferences, held in Chicago in December 2015, produced a
compelling set of Science
Working Group Reports that are key inputs to the exploration of
the scope, feasibility, and transformational science expected from the leading
future radio-millimeter-submillimeter instrument and technique
Parallel sessions at
Futures II in Baltimore will broadly discuss
potential radio-millimeter-submillimeter “Flagship” and “Small/Midscale” initiatives
over the planned three days of the conference. Flagship options are major investments
for instruments with widespread community benefit and support that will require
funding by or on a scale comparable to the National Science Foundation (NSF) –
Major Research Equipment and Facility Construction (MREFC) line.
Small/Midscale initiatives are significant investments that might be funded via
the NSF Mid-Scale Initiative Program (MSIP) line, such as experiments emerging
from smaller groups and collaborations.
Please join us for this
important and continuing discussion of the future of U.S.
radio-millimeter-submillimeter science in Baltimore in early August!
