ngCFHT : A Bright Future for CFHT

David Crampton (Dominion Astrophysical Observatory - National Research Council Canada)

CFHT can be relatively easily upgraded to a 10m class wide field multi-object spectroscopic facility. This facility will enable transformational science in many areas of astronomy, from Galactic Archaeology to Dark Energy, and will complement the multitude of imaging surveys that are currently underway or are being planned. A feasibility study has just begun that involves the larger CFHT partnership (Brazil, China and Taiwan) as well as the original CFHT partners. Scientific and technical involvement in this exciting project is welcome. The scientific promise of the facility, the corresponding scientific requirements, and the baseline design of the proposed facility will be discussed in this talk.
