The report of the Committee entitled "Mapping
the Future of VLBI Science in the U.S." was accepted in
August, 2004 by
the Directors of MIT Haystack Observatory and NRAO. The report
is available in both pdf and
gzipped postscript formats. This report
considers the exciting scientific future of VLBI in the US,
with emphasis on ground-based VLBI, and provides a science and
technology plan for the next decade.
We held a series of open meetings during the summer of 2003 to gather
input from the astronomical community across the U.S.. Here is a link
to the powerpoint presentation that were
used to start the Pasadena, Socorro, and Baltimore meetings. The
minutes for each meeting can be found below. Participants and
affiliations are listed, but we have removed identifiers from the
Pasadena Open Meeting on July 11, 2003 organized by Greg Taylor and Shri Kulkarni and hosted by Caltech.
Boston Open Meeting on September 2, 2003 organized by David Wilner and Shep Doeleman and hosted by CfA.
Socorro Open Meeting on September 5, 2003 organized by Greg Taylor and Joan Wrobel and hosted by NRAO.
