We are pleased to announce the upcoming workshop "IGRINS 2015: High Resolution Spectroscopy with IGRINS" to be held on Nov. 12-13, 2015 at Seoul National University, Seoul, Korea.
The registration is now open and the deadline for abstract submission is Oct. 23 (Fri), 2015. To register, please visit the workshop website: http://kgmt.kasi.re.kr/igrins2015/
Scientific Rationale
This workshop is intended to bring together the current and potential users of the high-resolution, near-infrared spectrometer IGRINS. IGRINS (the Immersion Grating Infrared Spectrometer) is an Echelle spectrometer that can provide an R=40,000 spectrum covering the entire H and K bands in a single exposure. It was built as part of a collaboration between the University of Texas (UT), the Korea Astronomy and Space Institute (KASI), and Kyung Hee University. The instrument is being operated at the 2.7-m telescope of the McDonald observatory after a succeful comission in early 2014. The workshop will cover broad science topics to be explored with IGRINS in Solar system, Stars and Stellar Systems, Star and Planet Formation, Diffuse ISM, and Galaxies.
