We wish to invite the broader gamma-ray community to a discussion of a future wide field-of-view TeV observatory for the Southern Hemisphere. The HAWC collaboration will host this meeting on the 10th and 11th of November followed by a visit to the high-altitude HAWC site a couple of hours from Puebla on the 12th. Transport up the mountain and lunch will be provided.
Our goal is to build up an international collaboration and a white paper on the science and technology of a southern TeV all-sky observatory on the time scale of the 2017 summer International Cosmic Ray Conference.
The meeting will be held in the beautiful colonial city of Puebla, Mexico, less than two hours by bus from Mexico City, and also served by an international airport.
A conference fee of about 30 USD (paid in local currency) will be collected at the meeting to cover breaks/coffee/miscellaneous charges. Receipts will be provided.
To help build up community efforts for a southern observatory, we have setup an email list (independent of the HAWC collaboration) for discussions of the southern all-sky detector (or other related business):

Feel free to invite others to the email list, whether they can attend the meeting or not.
