The LBTO 2017 Users’ Meeting will take place at the Convitto della Calza, Florence, Italy, from Tuesday evening, June 20 to Friday, June 23.
With the LBT facility instruments commissioned in pairs, LBTI routinely used by all partners in incoherent or coherent mode, LINC-NIRVANA en route for Lean-MCAO observing, and the ultra-high resolution of the PEPSI spectrograph available, the 2nd Users’ Meeting will focus on enabling LBT to realize its full potential as both a pair of 8.4m telescopes and, thanks to its interferometric capabilities, a forerunner of the ELTs.
For current or prospective LBT users, the meeting will be an opportunity to share their scientific results, projects, and aspiration for the future of the observatory, foster boundary-crossing multi-partner collaborations, discuss new observing modes and new services with the observatory staff, and prepare for the next generation of instruments on the horizon for 2018-2019, all of which exploit the unique performance of the LBT’s upgraded AO system.
Please mark the date! You will find a first set of practical information (meeting place, links to hotel reservation, talk/poster submission) by visiting the Users’ Meeting website here.
