The 2018 KIAA-PKU Astrophysics Forum

China's Future Ground-Based Astronomical Facilities

 

December 3-4, 2018

Kavli Institute for Astronomy and Astrophysics, Peking University

 

Chinese astronomy still lacks modern observing facilities, but this situation will soon change thanks to the great efforts of the community. In the next 5-10 years, we expect to see a rapid development of ground-based facilities, including 6-12m class general-purpose telescopes, 1-4m class large-field survey telescopes and time-domain telescopes. Meanwhile, we will also see a significant development of millimeter, sub-millimeter, and radio facilities.

 

The theme for this year's KIAA-PKU Astrophysics Forum is “China's Future Ground-Based Astronomical Facilities”. In the forum, colleagues from major astronomical institutes will introduce their future telescopes and facilities that are being planned or constructed. We will also have extensive discussions on relevant science and technology. We encourage the Chinese astronomy community to actively participate in the forum. The forum will provide a platform for collaborations between individuals and institutions.

 

Topics to be covered in the forum include:

Future ground-based facilities

Science goals and collaborations

Technical requirements and collaborations

Collaborations between institutions and different projects

Observatory sites

2018年度北京大学科维理天体物理论坛

中国未来地面天文设备展望

 

2018年12月3-4日

北京大学科维理天文与天体物理研究所

 

众所周知,当前较为落后的天文观测设备严重制约着中国天文的发展。但是,在天文界同仁的共同努力下,这种被动情况有望在不久的将来得到很大改观。在未来5至10年,我们有望开始建立一系列先进的地面观测设施,包括6-12米级通用光学红外望远镜、1-4米级光学大视场巡天和时域巡天望远镜等。同时,毫米、亚毫米及射电望远镜设施也将得到长足的发展。

 

本年度北京大学科维理天体物理论坛的主题为“中国未来地面天文设备展望”。各天文单位将介绍各自建设中的或者计划中的地面天文设备。会议上我们将对相关的技术、科学及未来的合作进行深入讨论。会议的目的之一是让天文界同仁们(尤其是中青年学者)充分认识到在不远的将来会有哪些地面天文仪器设备,以便做好科学上的准备。

 

会议将包括以下主题:

未来地面天文设施介绍

科学目标讨论与合作

技术指标讨论与合作

单位间合作及项目间合作

观测台址
