During the 2014 SPIE Astronomical Telescope + Instrumentation Conference, held at the Palais des Congres de Montreal between the 22nd and 27th June 2014, Gemini will host an informal meeting for interested attendees to interact with Gemini’s Development and Instrumentation Team on Monday 23rd June, starting at 17:30 in room 525.  Expanding on the previous day’s  9:00 Instrumentation at Gemini Observatory talk at the Ground-based and Airborne Instrument for Astronomy V conference, Gemini staff will provide additional updates on our next instrument and adaptive optics projects as well as new ways to bring instruments to Gemini.  All conference attendees are invited, and encouraged, to meet the team and discuss Gemini's future plans. Interactions and participation are sought with the astronomical community at large, not exclusively the Gemini partners. 
We want to hear from you!
 
The event also provides an opportunity to interact with Paul Martini, the chair of the Gemini Science and Technology Advisory Committee (STAC), which advises the Gemini Board on policy matters of long-range scientific and technical importance, including instrumentation capabilities.
