Decadal Survey 2010 Information and Updates

In May 2008, in preparation for the Decadal Survey, and in celebration of the 25th anniversary of IRAS, IPAC hosted a workshop to discuss strategies and plans for the future of far-infrared space astronomy. The goal of the workshop was to help define key science and technologies for the next generation of space-based far-infrared missions, based upon recent discoveries and the expected return of upcoming facilities, such as WISE, Herschel, SOFIA, JWST, ALMA, etc.
