The Magellan Scientific Advisory Committee (SAC) advises the Magellan Council on technical issues and serves as the coordinating body for instrument development. SAC representatives are designated by the Magellan Consortium institutions. There are three members from Carnegie, two from Harvard, and one from each of the other partners. The Magellan Project Scientist will be an additional representative if not already designated a representative.
Face-to-face meetings are held once per year (formerly twice per year), usually at the Santa Barbara Street campus of Carnegie Observatories. A record of agendas and presentations is at the SAC Meeting records link at left.
The SAC mailing list is restricted to SAC representatives plus the following technical and administrative personnel: John Mulchaey, Beverly Fink, David Osip, Povilas Palunas, Francesco Di Mille, Mike Gladders (U. Chicago), Mark Phillips, Alan Uomoto.
