4MOST workshop

I would like to draw your attention at the following 4MOST workshop


The 4MOST consortium invites the astronomical community to a workshop on Science with Large Area Spectroscopic Surveys
to develop the specific needs for spectroscopic survey facilities in the next decade. This three-day workshop (13-15 Nov 2012)
held at the AIP, Potsdam, will enable discussions between scientists from all astronomical fields from both inside and outside
the 4MOST consortium, in order to ensure that the capabilities and observational strategies of 4MOST will satisfy the largest
range of science opportunities as foreseen by the broader astronomical community.

Although it is unfortunately too late to register, maybe some among you are planning to go and it would be important then to
convey the message that spectropolarimetric data will significantly augment the science legacy of the telescope. If somebody
plans to give a talk there, please let me know and if you agree, we could also share your presentation on our website. 

Also, there might be more opportunities to discuss the Conceptual Design Study, so we will keep you informed.
