›Science with the Atacama Pathfinder Experiment
Schloss Ringberg, Tegernsee
Since its inauguration in 2005, the Atacama Pathfinder Experiment (APEX) 12 m submillimeter telescope has significantly contributed to a wide variety of submillimeter astronomy science areas, ranging from the discoveries of new molecules to large and deep imaging of the submillimeter sky.
With the recent extension of APEX by the partners beyond 2012 and the changes in the submm/FIR observatory landscape with the advent of Herschel, SOFIA and ALMA, it is timely to discuss recent new science results with APEX and its scientific and instrumental opportunities in the future.
The conference venue Ringberg Castle will provide a unique setting for in depth discussions on current and future science with APEX. In particular, sessions on new scientific results, on synergies with other observatories and on APEX beyond 2012 are envisioned.
The castle can accomodate about 60 participants. Registration is now open at the website and early registration is encouraged.
