Extremely Large Telescopes (ELT)

Organise regular meetings to discuss science developments in astronomy which affect the needs for and design of an ELT. Hold smaller meetings to update an ELT science case document and discuss critical ELT design decisions in light of information coming from the design study and other activities in the work package. Maintain evolving ELT web pages including a regularly updated science case.
