EAO Sub-mm Futures White Papers Discussion Wiki
This wiki is designed to aid in the ongoing discussion of the future of sub-mm astronomy within the East Asian Observatory. This wiki has been created on the back of the 2019 EAO Sub-mm Futures Meeting held at PMO, Nanjing, China. The main topics that were discussed at the meeting were:
White Papers will be written to show community demand for new instrumentation at the JCMT. Submission deadline: June 30th, 2019. Links to the individual White Paper pages can be found here for the Continuum science case:

Notes on writing White Papers
We thank you for supporting the writing of such important documents - White Papers in Support of a new 850 micron MKID continum Camera at the JCMT. The dealine for the white papers is June 30th.
- nine page limit
- Focus of paper on what can be achived with a new 850 micron MKID continum Camera
- Devote less than two pages to potential - future upgrades such as the 450 micron and heterodyne demands.
Example White Papers
For example White Papers visit feel free to look at the East Asian Vision for mm/submm VLBI White Paper and the SCUBA-2 White Paper "The Submillimeter Universe" by Scott et al. In addition links to the Science White papers submitted to Astro2020 Decadal Survey.
Questions to answer in the White Papers:
General overview of the science:
- What are the motivating scientific questions to be answered?
- What is the impact (or potential impact) of applied JCMT data?
Overview of Current Work:
- What is the current status of answering the motivating questions introduced in the previoussection?
- Is there a JCMT Large Program that attempts to address these questions?
- What synergies exist with other facilities/wavelengths?
The Next 5-10 Years:
- How can this work be furthered with new instrumentation?
- Assuming a factor of 10 increase inmapping speed at 850 microns, how would this work be affected?
- Assuming an increase inpolarisation mapping speed of 20 times, how would this work be affected?
- Does your team have a plan for initiating or extending a large program?
- Are there any additional requirements of the new instruments that are necessary to address themotivating scientific questions?
- Comment on JCMT’s role in your research in terms of data obtained using othertelescopes/facilities (including plans to make use facilities coming online in the near-future).
