WIYN Observatory: Partnerships
American Astronomical Society, AAS Meeting #222, #204.01
Published in Jun 2013
As part of its "meeting-in-a-meeting" highlighting the scientific contributions and the new instrumentation available at WIYN, the Observatory partners are providing a forum for discussion of potential partnership arrangements for national 4-meter class telescopes. In this session, WIYN and other operators of 4-meter class telescopes will join in a panel discussion that features their plans for the future, possible strategies for broadening the user base from the community, and potential synergies and partnerships with existing and planned large survey projects and facilities. This session is intended to facilitate a conversation within the national community that explores potential future partnership arrangements to provide stable operational models for moderate aperture facilities that currently serve a large user base in the US.
