portada

September 6th 2016

Calar Alto Observatory is an astronomical reference for the Spanish and international communities due to the quality of its telescopes and astronomical instrumentation. With this idea in mind, it is now the time for proposing and selecting the last generation of instruments the community considers the optimum ones to perform front-line scientific projects, unaffordable in other observatories.

This workshop that will be held at the Instituto de Astrofísica de Andalucía (IAA-CSIC) and opened to the Spanish and international scientific communities, is the starting point for this new stage of Calar Alto Observatory and will open the debate to select the best proposals for the new instrumentation and for most challenging Legacy projects.
