Abstract:

This workshop is timed to raise awareness and prepare the UK community for important decision points in the E-Elt instrument roadmap. Particular emphasis will be placed on the scientific drivers and priorities for the UK community in high-resolution (HIRES) and multi-object spectroscopy (MOS) with the E-ELT.

 

Appropriately, this meeting will be held at the RAS where, 150 years ago, William Huggins presented the first stellar spectrum ever obtained. The RAS ordinary meeting immediately following this workshop will mark this anniversary.
