7 - 11 Sept 2015

Cefalu, Sicily, ITALY

The workshop will consider the science from current and upcoming MOS facilities, with a focus on the important cases where we are already limited by sensitivity and spatial resolution.  

We will review the scientific topics that demand future MOS capabilities on ELTs, with emphasis given to the required sensitivity, multiplex, and angular resolution.

The workshop will be organized in sessions on science themes, starting from potential studies of planetary systems and stellar populations in the local Universe (including the Milky Way), out to galaxy evolution in different environments and up to the earliest phases of galaxy formation.

There will be a special session dedicated to critical analysis of the ELT MOS facilities required in the post-JWST era to assess their complementarity and competitiveness.
