Today’s proposal(for HSC, not for SUMIRE) N-PAC council H.Karoji S.Miyazaki PI Advisory Council HSC Survey Design Committee H.Aihara, P.Ho, H.Murayama, D.Spergel, Y.Suto, E.Turner M.Chiba, J.Gunn, K.Shimasaku, M.Strauss, M.Takada, K.Umetsu …… Working group 1 Working group N Working group 2 Working group 3 HSC collaborators
How to proceed next ? (Jan. 2009 version) • Aug. 2010: deadline of the Subaru strategic program proposal • Jun. 2010: HSC proposal 1st draft completed and circulated among collaborators • Mar. 2010: Japan-Princeton-Taiwan HSC workshop @ Japan ? • Dec. 2009: draft of HSC survey circulated among collaborators • Nov. 2009: HSC workshop @ Princeton • Mar. 2009: 3rd HSC workshop (in Japanese) @ NAOJ or Univ. of Tokyo
How to proceed next ? • Dec. 2013: 1st world-top result from HSC as part of SUMIRE project • XXX.2012: start HSC survey • Aug. 2011: deadline of the Subaru strategic program proposal • XXX. 2011: HSC proposal 1st draft completed and circulated among collaborators • XXX.2010: Japan-Princeton-Taiwan HSC workshop @ Japan ? • Nov. 2009: HSC workshop @ Princeton
Summary of discussion on Sept. 25 at The University of Tokyo • According to the draft of HSC white paper, the number of requested nights of wide, deep and ultra-deep surveys is 600. • Somehow we have to reduce it by 50% (?) • It is non trivial at al. • Possibilities include • Cut each of these surveys by a factor of two. • Drop one (or even two !) of the survey plans, and adjust the number of nights among the rest of the plans • Something in-between the above two, by cutting each of the surveys by a factor depending on the strength of their scientific case. The factors may be adapted after a few years of the survey, depending on its achievements.
Purpose of today’s discussion • The latest number of requested nights for each survey (wide, deep, and ultra-deep) • Presentation by each survey group • Agreement on the decision making procedure • Discussion today and tomorrow • Final decision; who and how ? • other collaboration issues
Summary of requested nights • Wide • 1500 deg2 159 nights (w/o weather factor) • 1000 deg2106 nights • Deep • 79 nights (w/o weather factor) • Ultra-deep • 69 nights (w/o weather factor) • Max number of nights: 210 (w/o weather factor) • Ratio: (159+79+69)/210=307/210=1.46 • On average, 210/307=0.68 reduction
Comparison: Nov.11 vs. Nov.12 • Wide • 1500 deg2 159 nights ⇒ 1000 deg2106 nights • Deep • 79 nights ⇒ 43 nights • Ultra-deep • 69 nights ⇒ 60 nights • Max number of nights: 210 (w/o weather factor) • Wide: deep: ultra-deep = 50: 20: 30
