The PFS project is in its final stage of hardware delivery and approaching such a critical phase as the start of scientific operation. Under this circumstance, a meeting of the science working groups took place at Tufts University near Boston, USA from August 30 to September 1, 2023.
In this meeting, the representatives (co-chairs) from each working group shared the progress of the large survey observation plan utilizing PFS (see past articles). In addition, considering the reported results of the previous engineering observations (see past articles), we discussed the necessity for any modifications and optimizations to enhance the survey plan.
This small group meeting enabled lively discussions with frank but yet sometimes critical opinions. Autumn is gradually approaching in Boston. We eagerly anticipated the upcoming science observations in the modern architecture in contrast to the traditional townscape of Boston.
