US NGO workshops and splinter meetings at the AAS

NOIRLab regularly holds a series of mini-workshops and splinter meetings at the winter AAS meetings. These are intended to advocate for use of the Gemini facilities and data by the US community. If you have a suggestion for a topic and/or speaker contact the US NGO team.

The US NGO at NSF's NOIRLab organizes this Splinter Session at the AAS Meeting #239, where scientists will show their results based on this specific Gemini observing mode. While the science topic will span a variety of aspects of stars and the ISM, all invited speakers have used the FT mode as an ad hoc method to get their science results, and they will talk about their experience on how the FT mode has impacted their science. Confirmed speakers and talks are:

Janice Lee, Gemini Observatory Chief Scientist, will give the introductory talk reviewing the FT Gemini mode, its usage, and statistical aspects. This Splinter Session is ideally suited for students and researchers interested in the broad range of Gemini modes, and all scientists interested in the specific science topics.
