SPICA/SMI Kickoff Meeting
October 4, 2018
ASIAA R1203, AS/NTU Astronomy-Mathematics Building


The SPace Infrared telescope for Cosmology and Astrophysics (SPICA) mission is selected as one of ESA’s fifth medium class mission in its Cosmic Vision science programme in May 2018. In SPICA, ASIAA partners with JAXA to develop the SPICA Mid-infrared Instrument (SMI) and the science program associate with it. It is important to regain our momentum on the science activities and technical development after the M5 phase A selection.

This workshop aims to provide the opportunities for Taiwanese astronomers to review the capability of the new SPICA, to present the science interests with SPICA and also to promote the future collaboration between Taiwanese and Japanese communities especially on SMI. Some detailed information of SPICA/SMI can be found here.

We look forward to seeing you in the workshop.
