About the Keck Science Meeting

Partners of the W.M. Keck Observatory are pleased to announce the 2020 Keck Science Meeting, which will take place online during Thursday-Friday, September 24-25. The meeting will bring together Keck users from Caltech, the University of California, NASA, the University of Hawaii, Yale University, Notre Dame, Swinburne University, ANU, Australian Keck Users via the AAL, Subaru Observatory, and Gemini Observatory. The primary focus of the meeting will be to share exciting science results made possible by Keck Observatory.

This year's meeting will also include a session hosted by chairs of the Science Steering Committee who will review the funded studies/projects from the recent white paper process. We will also have breakout sessions with discussions sourced from the Keck community.

The meeting will take place virtually. Late registration is available. Registration is required to receive the Zoom link and a Slack invitation for the meeting. There is no fee to attend.
