East Asia VLBI Workshop 2012
May 30-June 2, 2012
ASIAA Auditorium, Taipei, Taiwan

The Institute of Astronomy and Astrophysics at Academia Sinica (ASIAA) is pleased to announce the workshop "The 5th East Asia VLBI workshop 2012", on behalf of the East Asia VLBI Consortium.

VERA has produced a large amount of fruitful results in astrometry and astrophysics. The Japanese VLBI Network (JVN) has expanded its capability by including two 32 m telescopes in Ibaraki, and has intensively conducted VLBI observations, especially, towards methanol maser sources. The Korean VLBI Network (KVN) has started joint observations with VERA. The Chinese VLBI Network (CVN), consisting of four VLBI stations and the VLBI data processing center in Shanghai, has successfully performed VLBI observations of AGN and pulsars. Some CVN telescopes have been also involved actively in the international VLBI observations with other networks including the East Asia VLBI Network. ASIAA in Taiwan has started a site-testing effort at Summit Camp in Greenland and works on retrofitting the ALMA North America prototype antenna with international collaborators, aiming to establish a new sub-millimeter VLBI site.

In this workshop, latest scientific results and technical achievements/developments will be reported to exchange the newest ideas, and future collaborations in East Asia region to enhance VLBI and related activities would be discussed.
