2014 Interferometry Forum

Newly Released: The 2014 Forum Report (draft 2014-08-26)

When: June 28th, 2014; 9am - 5:45pm

Where: Université de Montréal, Pavillion Roger-Gaudry, Room D-460 (directions).

Purpose: The objective of this forum was to provide a venue for exchanges on planning, opportunities, collaborations, possible coordination, issues related to the optimization and science operation of current array facilities, and opportunities for the future. A workshop environment was provided, and a modest attendance, so that extended discussions engaging all participants were possible and encouraged. Our aim was to provide a measured, deliberate environment that compliments the pace of the more frenetic SPIE meeting.
