Frontiers of Astronomy with the World's Largest Radio Telescope

Frontiers of Astronomy with the
World's Largest Radio Telescope
September 12-13, 2007, Washington, DC

The focus of the meeting is to explore scientific frontiers that require large collecting area and state of the art instrumentation over the next 5 to 15 years. It is expected that transformational science will involve a mixture of large-scale surveys, including those that go beyond the current ALFA surveys, and long-term monitoring, such as the timing of millisecond pulsars to detect nano-Hertz gravitational waves, as well as targetted projects. The meeting will form the basis for an Arecibo scientific and instrumentation roadmap that takes into account developments in electromagnetic and non-photonic astronomy and, in particular, development of the Square Kilometer Array.
