SPICA/SAFARI consortium meeting

The next SPICA collaboration meeting will be held at SRON in Groningen, from Tuesday 2nd of April through Thursday 4th of April.

As always, we will be discussing the overall SPICA progress and plans, SPICA science issues and operations, as well as instrument development progress. Different from previous meetings, we aim to do some activities in parallel: instrument splinters parallel to the science meeting and vice versa, and also do the technical instrument discussions for the two European instruments in parallel. This will allow us to stay within the 3 days while still tackling all the subjects. The draft skeleton agenda is shown here - we aim for plenary sessions starting Tuesday 2nd after lunch with general progress, then Wednesday 3rd address science and Thursday 4th instrument progress.
