VLA Expansion Project

EVLA Planning Workshop:
Defining the Second Phase

NRAO

Overview


Thursday: Background Material

The first day focused on background material, presenting the project as currently conceived and various options under consideration, and discussing the connections between the EVLA and other (current or proposed) radio telescopes. The presentations were relatively brief, as we had a fair amount on the Web ahead of time; the idea was to leave lots of room for discussion and other ideas.

Friday: Discussion Groups

On Friday we split up into various scientific working groups to discuss the list of questions we hoped this workshop would answer (or at least seriously address). Each working group produced a written set of answers, available on the same Web site.

Saturday: Group Reports and Summary

The groups presented their reports on Saturday, and the workshop concluded with an attempt at summarizing the consensus on each of the discussion issues.
