ASIAA Auditorium, Taipei, Taiwan


SV sessions:
Jan 19-20 will be dedicated to the discussion and planning of the upcoming Band 1 Science Verification (SV) phase. If you are going to stay for the SV Sessions, please sign up at on-site registration on Monday. We will be able to provide remote access to the discussions, including the possibility of sharing presentation files. Information on how to remotely access the sessions will be provided to the Band 1 SV list during the week.
