The Third WEAVE All-Hands Meeting

17-20 September 2018, Naples, Italy

WEAVE is a new wide-field spectroscopic facility being constructed for the prime focus of the 4.2m William Herschel Telescope on La Palma. The instrument is expected to be on-sky in mid 2019 to provide spectroscopic sampling of the faint end of the Gaia astrometric catalogue, chemical labelling of stars to V~17, and dedicated follow-up of substantial numbers of sources from the LOFAR surveys. Following the success of the first two WEAVE All-Hands Meetings in 2016 and 2017, the third WEAVE All-Hands Meeting will again bring together scientists and key engineers from the WEAVE Project over four days, this time in Naples, Italy. While the previous two WAHMs brought together a cohort of scientists and engineers for parallel meetings spanning both the Engineering and Science Teams, this year's meeting will focus on WEAVE Survey preparations, providing each of the science teams ample time to have face-to-face discussions in the beautiful setting of the Italian Air Force Academy.
