International Meeting

Large Aperture Millimeter/Submillimeter Telescopes

in the ALMA Era

  1. Exploring the astrophysical potential of next generation large single-dish telescopes with ultra-wide field of view and bandwidth at millimeter and submillimeter wavelengths.

  2. Exchanging current status of future and existing mm/submm telescopes, including CCAT, LMT, ASTE, NRO 45m, IRAM 30m, APEX, NANTEN2, etc.

  3. Sharing updated information on astrophysical activities and technology developments.

  4. Discussion on the future (mid-term and long-term) collaboration among projects.
