The Third CCAT-Prime/FYST Collaboration Meeting to be held Apr 4-6, 2022

The third annual CCAT Collaboration Meeting (CCM3) will be held from April 4 – 6, 2022. The CCAT-prime observatory (www.ccatobservatory.org) will feature the Fred Young Submillimeter Telescope (FYST) which is currently under construction.  FYST will be a 6-meter diameter, 10-micron surface precision telescope working at submillimeter to millimeter wavelengths.  It will operate in survey mode only and first light is expected in 2024.

This meeting will provide an update on the technical and scientific status of the project, including status of the instrumentation and science planning.  The major goal of this meeting is to outline and tune the planning and simulation to science steps to optimize the science return from FYST. The program tab (http://ccatconf.astro.cornell.edu/program) gives the agenda for the 3 days of the meeting.
