Canadian Gemini Updates

Stéphanie Côté (NRC-Herzberg)

We will provide updates on Gemini operations over the last year, and provide some statistics of semesters 2014A and 2014B on oversubscription rates and instrument usage from the Canadian community. The status of Gemini upcoming instruments, instrument upgrades, and new programmes will be reviewed. In particular we will discuss the results of the first trial of the Fast Turnaround Program (FTP) in Canada. This is a new mode of proposing for time that Gemini is investigating, designed to greatly decrease the time between having an idea and acquiring the supporting data. You can stop by the poster to meet CGO staff who will be available to answer your questions about Phase I, Phase II, data reductions, etc.
