The Second 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 early 2019 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. Following the success of the WAHM1 in December 2016, the second WEAVE All-Hands Meeting (WAHM2) will again bring together scientists and engineers from the WEAVE project over three days, this time in Groningen, The Netherlands, to discuss the the instrument, science cases, survey plans, science data processing and archiving, and their interaction. The goal of WAHM2 is to provide the members of the WEAVE project with a coherent view of the status of the project and its forward planning, approximately one year before instrument first light.
