We invite the astronomical community to participate in the 2021 HRMOS Science workshop, to be held online and in-person 18-22 October, 2021.

The meeting will be a hybrid of online and in-person (Firenze, Italy and Sydney, Australia), and run for half-days taking into account different timezones.

The High Resolution Multi-Object Spectrograph (HRMOS) is a proposed facility instrument for the ESO’s VLT, following the initial presentation at the VLT 2030 workshop. HRMOS provides a combination of capabilities essential to carry out breakthrough science across a broad range of active research areas from Galactic and Local Group Archaeology to Stellar Astrophysics and Exoplanet studies.

HRMOS fills a gap in capabilities amongst the landscape of future instrumentation planned for the next decade. The key capability of HRMOS is high spectral resolution (R = 60,000 - 80,000) with multi-object (50-100) capabilities and stability that provides radial velocity precision (~10m/s). Initial designs predict a SNR=30 is achievable within 1hr for mag(AB) = 17-18 depending on resolution. The combination of high resolution and multiplex going to relatively bluer wavelengths (from 380nm), is truly a spectrograph that will push the boundaries of our knowledge and is envisioned as a workhorse instrument in the future.

This conference aims to bring together the International scientific community, to propose and discuss science projects where HRMOS will have a strong impact due to its unparalleled capabilities, as well as identifying the areas where it will provide unique synergies with existing and forthcoming large surveys and facilities such as 4MOST, WEAVE, MOONS and the ELTs. 

This meeting is your opportunity to present your science with HRMOS and join the collaboration to push forward the HRMOS project in preparation for an upcoming White paper call.
