The Survey Management Plan (SMP) for WAVES provides a brief summary of the survey science, scientific requirements for the 4MOST instrument, a detailed breakdown of the expected work packages and involvement with the 4MOST Infrastructure Working Groups (IWGs), and team structure.
Funding from two successful ARC LIEF awards ($640k in 2014 and $430k in 2015), University partners contributions and AAO development costs provides a total of $1.8Million cash towards development of the 4MOST fibre positioner AESOP.
Australian P.I Simon Driver attends the international meeting "Community Astrophysics with WFIRST: Guest Observer and Archival Science" in Pasadena from 29 Feb through to 2 March 2016.
The N-body simulation programme supporting WAVES and more broadly 4MOST galaxy formation and cosmology projects is well under way.
