Panchromatic Panoramic Studies of Galaxy Clusters: from HSC to PFS and ULTIMATE
March 11-13, 2019
ASIAA, Taipei, Taiwan

Owing to its large aperture and wide field-of-view, Subaru telescope has played key roles in advancing our understanding of the formation and evolution of galaxy clusters. With the 300-night Hyper Suprime-Cam (HSC) survey, the largest ever undertaking of Subaru, the HSC collaboration is conducting a unique survey of all key phases in the lives of clusters. The deep and wide areal coverage and the superb imaging quality have enabled us to publish the first large sample of shear-selected clusters, as well as the largest distant cluster and proto-cluster samples beyond redshift of 1.

As a prelude to the second public data release of the HSC survey, we will hold a 3-day workshop on March 11-13, 2019 at Institute of Astronomy and Astrophysics, Academia Sinica (ASIAA) in Taipei, which is part of the Subaru International Partnership workshop series. Researchers working in all aspects of cluster science are cordially invited to participate in the workshop, where latest results from the HSC survey will be presented. The workshop will be a venue for presenting and discussing results from all large-scale cluster surveys, as well as for brainstorming and preparation for cluster studies with the upcoming instruments on Subaru and other telescopes, such as Prime Focus Spectrograph, ULTIMATE-Subaru, AdvACT, SPT-3G, DESI, eROSITA, Euclid, Moons, LSST, and 30-meter class telescopes.

The topics of the workshop include:

We shall also have discussion sessions on themes such as "Cluster mass calibration", "Machine learning in cluster detection".

We particularly welcome scientists interested in collaborating with the HSC cluster team to join the workshop, where the number of participants is limited to 50. Limited travel funding is available to early-career scientists. There is no registration fee for the workshop.
