The 3rd Workshop on

Large Aperture Sub/mm Telescope in the ALMA Era

NAOJ, Tokyo

March 10 – 11, 2015


The Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA), the most powerful mm/submm facility with high angular resolution imaging capability coupled with unprecedentedly high sensitivity, has been producing a growing number of impressive and compelling results.  It is also evident that many outstanding ALMA results often rely on wide area surveys using existing ground-based and space telescopes such as Nobeyama, Nanten, IRAM, JCMT, CSO, Mopra, SPT, ASTE, APEX, Spitzer, AKARI, Herschel, and so on, emphasizing the importance of next generation large mm/submm survey telescopes, which will have large FoV (> 0.5 deg) and large instantaneous frequency coverage with large format bolometer/heterodyne arrays, to exploit ALMA capabilities.

The goals of the workshop are (1) to explore the astrophysical potential of such next generation large single dish telescopes at mm/submm wavelengths, (2) to share current status and running and planned mm/submm telescopes such as LMT, GLT, CCAT, and LST, (3) to discuss about state-of-the-art technologies of detectors/receivers/telescopes, which

shall be essential for the next generation mm/submm telescopes, and (4) to discuss about the synergies with related survey missions at other wavelengths such as Subaru, WISH, SPICA, and SKA.  The scientific topic includes a wide range of astronomy/astrophysics, including cosmology, the Galaxy and galaxies, super-massive black holes, star-formation, ISM, astrochemistry, circum-stellar disks, etc.  Emphasis is also placed on time-domain science; fast radio bursts, gamma-ray bursts, super novae, gravitational wave objects will also be discussed.

The workshop will consist of invited/keynote talks and contributed talks.
