Motivation and goal of the workshop: The 2020 Decadal survey report, “Pathways to Discovery in Astronomy and Astrophysics for the 2020s”, has recommended a new line of probe missions for the coming decade, that would provide powerful capabilities not possible at the Explorer scale. The report also identified a far-IR or X-ray probe as highest priority to accomplishing the survey’s scientific goals.

The goal of this community workshop is to discuss and refine the science that could be accomplished with a far-IR probe within the cost and schedule envelopes outlined by the survey.

More information and details coming soon.
