Canada-France-Hawaii Telescope 11th Users' Meeting

Every three years CFHT’s talented and diverse community gathers to discuss recent accomplishments and challenges and factor them into plans for CFHT’s future. Lots has happened at CFHT since the last Users’ Meeting at Campbell River. New dome vents have been installed and proven to increase image quality markedly, SITELLE has been delivered and will be released for use in 2016, SPIRou is under construction, several Large Programs are nearing completion while new Large Programs of unprecedented scale are being devised, GRACES now couples CFHT and Gemini, and what was termed ngCFHT 3 years ago has led to the Maunakea Spectroscopic Explorer Project Office in Waimea. This impressive string of accomplishments is directly attributable to the talents and vision of CFHT’s incredible community. CFHT consistently ranks among the leading observatories worldwide in terms of publication numbers and their scientific impact. Through this leadership in scientific research, innovative operations, and collaborative development, CFHT’s community will play a key role in the growth and evolution of the Maunakea Observatories. With all of this in mind, the local and scientific organizing committees for CFHT’s 2016 Triennial Users’ Meeting invite our international community to join us in Nice, France, to share their discoveries from and visions for CFHT and the Maunakea Observatories.
