2010 CFHT Users Meeting
November 16-18, 2010
ASIAA Auditorium, Taipei, Taiwan


We have a very packed program for this 9th User's meeting, whose primary goal is to set future directions while also showcasing CFHT science. At this User's Meeting, future directions are especially important. Time slots are variable; SOC elected to give instrument proposals and reports on running large programs more time; any presentation longer than 15 minutes should reserve 5 minutes (at least) for questions and discussion. The 10 and 15 minute slots should reserve at least 3 minutes for questions unless the speaker does not wish questions/discussion to follow their talk.

In order for everyone to be able to present their science, many slots are 10 or 15 minutes. In order to have a smooth meeting and leave the needed time for round table discussion, PLEASE respect your colleagues and (1) stay within your time slot, and (2) submit your presentation file to LOC staff one session before the session of your talk so that we may have seamless transition between talks.
