This meeting brings together the EMU, POSSUM and GALFACTS project for a week long discussion of full polarization radio continuum science.   The GALFACTS portion of the meeting will include sessions on:

  • GALFACTS Project Update - update on observations, processing, technical issues, and data release schedule.  Preview of data in the pipeline for release. 
  • GALFACTS DQA - reports on data quality analysis and science readiness for fields release before the meeting (N1, S1, S2, and possibily N4).  This session is being organized by the DQA.
  • GALFACTS Science and Publication Policies and Early Science Plans (review and discussion of policy documents)
  • Technical session on techniques for Rotation Measure estimation perhaps using some GALFACTS Data
  • GALFACTS Early Science Proposal Presentations
