The Royal Observatory Edinburgh is holding a symposium of remembrance for UK ATC scientist Professor Wayne Holland, who sadly died of cancer on May 22nd 2019. Wayne made a huge number of contributions to submillimetre astronomy and many astronomers will have benefited from his work and help, especially the support of SCUBA he gave in Hawaii and of course his leadership of SCUBA-2. We are organising a day of talks, each of approximately 20 minutes, from friends and colleagues reminiscing of their work with Wayne. The date will be Thursday February 13th 2020 and it will be held at the Royal Observatory Edinburgh. The talks will start at 1030 preceded by coffee/tea from 1000 and will end by 1800. There will be an evening dinner for those who are interested and further details will be provided later.

We would be grateful if you could indicate your intentions by following the link to the Eventbright page below:
