JWST personnel will contribute to the STScI Town Hall. The Town Hall will report on the status of existing and upcoming missions at STScI and describe new opportunities designed to advance astrophysics through the 2020s. We will specifically address JWST updates on science operations and the pipeline, and present the Cycle 4 timeline. There will be ample time for questions from the community.

JWST at the STScI Exhibitor Booth

June 9-13
During regular booth hours

We have many resources in the booth to step you through planning observations with JWST. Our expert staff members will be on hand to provide individual assistance on a variety of topics from JWST instrument capabilities to proposal and planning tools (e.g., APT and ETC) to pipeline products and data analysis tools. You can also book a one-on-one “Ask-The-Experts” session and fill out a brief JWST survey. In addition, copies of the latest JWST Pocket Guide will be available.
