USA - University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill

The Southern Astrophysical Research (SOAR) Telescope is a 4.1 meter aperture telescope funded by a partnership between the U.S. National Optical Astronomy Observatory (NOAO), The Ministério da Ciência, Tecnologia, Inovações e Comunicações do Brasil (MCTIC / LNA), Michigan State University (MSU) and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (UNC).

After 10 years of continuing science operations with the SOAR telescope its time to plan the next decade of operations and which science YOU the users want to accomplish with SOAR. The key results gathered from observations with SOAR will be highlighted and we will outline promising science programs for the future.

The workshop/symposium includes two full days of science followed by sessions on current and future instrumentation. Users will be encouraged to share their experience and desires for the future.

The Symposium will take place at the Centro Brasileiro de Pesquisas Fisicas, Rio de Janiero, Brasil  and TheUniversity of North Carolina at Chapel Hill which will be linked by broadband teleconference facilities. There will be a number of invited speakers, together with ample time for contributed (oral) papers, posters, and discussion.
