The first-day session is mainly composed by business sessions as with the annual Subaru user's meeting. This session is coordinated by Yuichi Matsuda, Takayuki Kotani (NAOJ), Tohru Nagao (Ehime U.)
Notice: You may want to attend from Day-2 (Nov 18 Mon) unless you are heavy users of Subaru Telescope.
The session is coordinated by Tomonori Usuda (NAOJ/TMT). More details will be updated soon.

WFIRST-Subaru Synergy Workshop III (hosted by WFIRST WG)
The Wide Field Infrared Survey Telescope (WFIRST) is NASA's 2.4m space telescope equipped with a wide-field NIR camera for imaging and slitless spectroscopy (WFI) and an on-axis, visible-light Coronagraph Instrument (CGI) for imaging, polarimetry, and low-resolution spectroscopy. Following the successful workshops dedicated for discussion on the WFIRST-Subaru synergistic observation held in 2017 and 2018, this session provides an opportunity to gather people widely from the WFIRST and Subaru communities to more deeply discuss and sophisticate the WFIRST x Subaru synergistic observing programs.

The Subaru Prime Focus Spectrograph (PFS) can take exposures of 2,400 astronomical objects simultaneously on such a large patch of sky as several times bigger than the full Moon. The large program is planned with this innovative instrument involving the enourmously-large international collaboration.
We also welcome your contributions about PFS science studies on the theme of galaxies, black holes, and cosmology. The approved talks will be scheduled on Friday morning.

"ULTIMATE-Subaru" is a project to develop a next-generation, wide-field adaptive optics (GLAO) system, as well as new wide-field NIR instruments assisted by GLAO on the Subaru Telescope, to maximize its NIR observational capabilities toward 2020s and beyond. Maunakea is ideally suited for GLAO - we can achieve 0.2-arcsec angular resolution over 20-arcmin FoV, allowing us to explore the unprecedentedly deep, panoramic, and sharp views of the universe in NIR. The ULTIMATE project team will summarize its current status and scientific capabilities. The session will provide a great opportunity for the entire Subaru community to dream about the bright future of Subaru.
We have the prallalel science sessionsfor scientists on Tue/Thu/Fri to share their state-of-art research regardless of telescopes they use. We have six science categories organized by Science Organization Committee (SOC). We also have science keynotes on Friday afternoon.
