The 2018 KIAA-PKU Astrophysics Forum

“China's Future Ground-Based Astronomical Facilities”

December 3-4, 2018

Kavli Institute for Astronomy and Astrophysics, Peking University

Chinese  astronomy still lacks modern observing facilities, but this situation  will soon change thanks to the great efforts of the community. In the  next 5-10 years, we expect to see a rapid development of ground-based  facilities, including 6-12m class general-purpose telescopes, 1-4m class  large-field survey telescopes and time-domain telescopes. Meanwhile, we  will also see a significant development of millimeter, sub-millimeter,  and radio facilities.

The  theme for this year's KIAA-PKU Astrophysics Forum is “China's Future  Ground-Based Astronomical Facilities”. In the forum, colleagues from  major astronomical institutes will introduce their future telescopes and  facilities that are being planned or constructed. We will also have  extensive discussions on relevant science and technology. We encourage  the Chinese astronomy community to actively participate in the forum.  The forum will provide a platform for collaborations between individuals  and institutions.

Topics to be covered in the forum include:

  • Future ground-based facilities

  • Science goals and collaborations

  • Technical requirements and collaborations

  • Collaborations between institutions and different projects

  • Observatory sites
