Chicago-3 Community Workshop
Implementation of the SKA Program for the U.S. Community
September 14 & 15, 2007

The third in the series of community workshops addressed to the issue of how the international SKA project best satisfies the scientific priorities of U.S. astronomy at meter and centimeter wavelengths in the next decade and beyond, will be held September 14 and 15 in Washington, D.C. The Chicago-3 Community Workshop, Implementation of the SKA Program for the U.S. Community, is co-sponsored by NAIC, NRAO and the US SKA Consortium

The “Chicago” series of community workshops began with an initial meeting near the Chicago airport in February 2006 and continued with the much larger Tucson meeting in August 2006. The result of the Chicago-2 Tucson meeting was a specific plan of action that focused on the key science motivating U.S. participation in the international SKA endeavor given the broader context of U. S. astronomy ambitions at all wavelengths. Chicago-3 is the opportunity for all of us in the U.S. community to express the motivating key science in terms of a practical, coherent, U.S. SKA development program that can be presented in a way that emphasizes its full scientific excitement to the next decadal survey committee.

Chicago-3 is an open community workshop. Please plan on joining us.
