Planning Solar System Observations with JWST - STScI venue

Topic: 13-15 November 2017

Date: Monday, November 13, 2017

Location: STScI, Baltimore, MD, US,

This 2.5-day workshop will include a mixture of presentations about the promise of JWST for solar system science, specifics on observer planning tools and observatory capabilities, and hands-on training and Q&A with the planning tools.  The workshop is designed to assist solar system scientists to correctly plan JWST General Observer (GO) proposals for Cycle 1. Invited talks and contributed posters will address a range of solar system science applications. Plenary presentations by JWST project personnel will introduce the planning tools (Astronomer’s Proposal Tool (APT), Exposure Time Calculator (ETC), the ETC python engine, Pandeia, and general Target Visibility Tool (TVT)), and summarize key aspects of the observatory and instruments. Observations approved for Guaranteed Time Observers and through the Early Release Science Program (which cannot be duplicated in GO programs) will be summarized. Hands-on sessions will allow participants to gain experience using the tools in an environment where questions can be answered immediately by experienced staff. The workshop is timed to support JWST Cycle 1 open time proposals, which are expected to be due in February 2018.

A very similar workshop will be held in December at ESTEC, Netherlands. Participation at the STScI workshop is limited to 70, with no restriction on nationality.
