The First WEAVE All-Hands Meeting

WEAVE is a new wide-field spectroscopic facility being constructed for the prime focus of the 4.2m William Herschel Telescope on La Palma. The instrument is expected to be on-sky in 2018 to provide spectroscopic sampling of the faint end of the Gaia astrometric catalogue, chemical labelling of stars to V~17, and dedicated follow-up of substantial numbers of sources from the LOFAR surveys. The first WEAVE All-Hands Meeting (WAHM1) will bring together scientists and engineers from the WEAVE project over three days in Cambridge, UK, to discuss the the instrument, science cases, survey plans, science data processing and archiving, and their interaction. The goal of WAHM1 is to provide the members of the WEAVE project with a coherent view of the status of the project and its forward planning.
