Seoul 2018 Program

On this page you can find a tentative list of speakers and talk tiles for the 2018 JCMT Users Meeting to be held in Seoul, South Korea. This page will soon be updated to provide the full program. Please note several of the JCMT Large Programs are meeting prior to the JCMT meeting in order to share work/results and work on publications. Finally we apologize for the inconvenience but the EAO meeting scheduled for February 2nd has now been cancelled, the JCMT workshop scheduled for February 2nd is still being held.
