New queue mode observation for Hyper Suprime-Cam (HSC) will be opened from S16A.  Queue mode observation is a new observation model for Subaru Telescope. In this workshop, HSC Queue Working group will introduce the outline, policies, and procedures of HSC queue-mode observation. Practically, participants will learn about how to prepare the observation proposal (Phase 1) and how to prepare  and submit observation  plan (Phase 2). The meeting will be conducted in English and Japanese depends on session.


Draft documents on HSC queue-mode observations. "Program PI document" is for users who wish to submit proposals for HSC queue-mode. "Operation document" aims at defining policies and procedures for HSC queue-mode. It includes some information only necessary for Subaru Telescope staff members, but it is useful to understand the entire picture of the queue-mode procedure.

Phase 2 spreadsheets. In S16A we will provide a spreadsheet templete for Phase 2 (submission of Observing Blocks). these files will be used in the hands-on session during the workshop.
