The European ELT - Project status & plans for early science
14:00-17:30 29 June 2017
The European Extremely Large Telescope (E-ELT) will be the world's largest optical/IR telescope, with a collecting area greater than all the current generation of large ground-based facilities put together. This transformative facility is now well into its construction phase, with the contract to build the dome and main structure recently agreed, and design of the first instruments well underway ahead of production.
EWASS 2017 is therefore a timely opportunity for the European astronomical community to focus on the scientific and technological developments toward this hugely exciting and important project.
The program will feature an invited talk from the E-ELT Programme Scientist, giving an overview of the project, the latest news on its progress, and details of its first set of instruments (HARMONI, MICADO+MAORY, METIS). The remainder of the programme will be given to contributed talks and we invite abstracts on topics such as:
