Wide Area VISTA Extra-galactic Survey with 4MOST: http://www.wave-survey.org

Discussions are underway regards the prospect of an Australian Consortium joining the 4MOST collaboration to lead a 2-3million galaxy redshift survey (WAVES). 

To involve the community in this process a one day meeting has been organised at the AAO on 11th March 9am-4pm.
The intention of the meeting is three-fold:

- to inform the community about 4MOST and its current surveys (mainly GAIA and eROSITA follow-up)
- to hear from the community on the current WAVES design and any suggested additions/embellishments/modifications
- to discuss the path forward to securing Australian involvement via a 2014 ARC LIEF bid

Details on 4MOST, WAVES and the preliminary programme are at: http://www.wave-survey.org

If you're interested in coming to the meeting please email aaron.robotham at uwa.edu.au so we can have an idea of numbers.

Please also feel free to make contact with your node representative to discuss ideas before the meeting (see team tab on WAVES website).

We hope to see many of you there,
									Simon and the WAVES Design Team.
