Guideline for speakers:
Each talk is 20min long in total: 15min for presentation and 5min for Q&A.
The format is basically free and up to you, but it is helpful if your answers to the
following questions are covered in your talk.

(1. Yourself) What are your science interests and what projects are you working on?
(2. On-going) Is there any current on-going collaborations on Subaru or with other potential partner countries?
(3. Short/Long term) What are the potential future collaborations with Subaru (in short term <5yrs and long term >5yrs)?
(4. Size) What amount of Subaru nights are required to complete your programs? Does that fit in the current Subaru open-use programs (intensive/normal/service)?
(5. Instrument) What Subaru instruments will be used (current and future)? Request of any new instruments?
(6. Operation) Any request to Subaru science operation from scientific perspectives?

See also the document "Background information for speakers" available at:

Discussion items:
*Define some model cases of collaborations (both science and instrumentation)
*How do we organize medium-to-large class programs other than SSPs? Or do we just follow the current open-use scheme?
*Feedback to Subaru instrumentation and operation from scientific perspectives?
*Improve awareness of the Subaru partnership in the communities
*How do we deal with ToO programs?
*Launch science working group in each category for further discussion/contact/mini-workshop?
