Abstract

The Phase A design of MOSAIC, a powerful multi-object spectrograph intended for ESO’s Extremely Large Telescope, concluded in late 2017. With the design complete, a three-day workshop was held last October in Toledo to discuss the breakthrough spectroscopic surveys that MOSAIC can deliver across a broad range of contemporary astronomy.
