Thirty Meter Telescope Science Forum

The Thirty-Meter Telescope Observatory will host the inaugural “TMT Science Forum” on July 22 and 23, 2013 at the Waikoloa Resort on the island of Hawaii. The TMT is an international project to build and operate a 30-m telescope located on Mauna Kea, HI. The program will consist of talks and workshop discussions exploring TMT science, first-light and future instruments, observatory operations, archiving and data products, key projects and cross-partnership collaborations, and astronomy education and science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) opportunities.

The TMT Forum is an opportunity to engage the broad US astronomical community in the Observatory planning, including the development of international collaborations, based on a new Cooperative Agreement between the TMT and the U.S. National Science Foundation.
