IR Retreat 2007 (Dec 10-12)
Kloster Seeon
The basic idea is to use this get together for focussing on/discussing possible future projects and science.  
Speakers should make their presentations as short as possible - the goal of the presentations is to stimulate discussion - the listed times include discussion!!!
Not everyone is giving a presentation, but everyone should come prepared for discussion in at least 1 of the topics.

Topic II: Science Planning for
Herschel PACS GTO Programs Coordinator: Dieter Lutz
Format considerations:        
Few introductory/framework talks. Major part will be devoted to topical presentations of science cases with the goals of:
1) sharpening our view of science priorities      
2) identifying loose ends in ancillary data/model availability and follow up needs  
3) Outlining path from survey data to science      
Each of these should address without too much ado:    
1) goal and why it is important        
2) status (e.g. spitzer)        
3) path to result: which field do you use, what ancillary data, models etc.

Session Time Duration Speaker Title/Event
Future directions of
our high-z science program:
Coordinator: Natascha Foerster Schreiber See detailed description on web for more details about the session
and beyond
The speakers should explicitly address the following aspects:    
I. The scientific context, both theoretical and observational    
II. The impact of the results        
III. The open questions and the next steps to make progress    
IV. The bridge between SINFONI and LUCIFER    
V. Link the results/questions to the role of mass, gas, SF, feedback, environment, redshift evolution.
