We are pleased to announce the Subaru Users Meeting FY2021 that will be held in January 2022. Thanks to all of the efforts by the observatory and our community, Subaru telescope’s science impact remains among the highest of any ground based telescopes in the world. In response to the COVID-19 pandemic around the world, the presence of observatory staff has been significantly reduced at the summit and at the Hilo office, to minimize the risk of infection. However, in spite of this difficult situation, the observatory continues its operation by implementing a new remote observing mode.

According to the current relatively relaxed COVID-19 situation in Japan, this year we will host an annual Subaru Users Meeting FY2021 by hybrid of on-site at NAOJ Mitaka and online, to have close and intensive discussions with our community. When the situation gets worse, we may switch to an online only format. In addition, even if we hold an on-site meeting, the capacity of the meeting area may be limited for infection control. In this case, we may need you to participate in the meeting remotely.

Discussion topics will be new and planned Subaru instruments (a big new is that PFS has started commissioning observation), international collaboration and synergies with other facilities such as TMT, Rubin Observatory/LSST and Roman space telescope, the balance between Intensive and Normal programs, and the future direction of Subaru telescope. Subaru Users Meeting is an important opportunity for our community to share recent scientific results using Subaru data and future perspectives, and stimulate new collaborations. We encourage the Subaru community to participate in this users meeting and have intensive discussions on various topics related to the Subaru telescope.
