Massively Parallel Large Area Spectroscopy from Space
--- A community workshop hosted by the ATLAS Probe Team (October 19-20, 2018, Caltech)

Scientific breakthroughs are enabled by new capabilities in astrophysical instrumentation from space platforms. The next frontier in space astrophysics is massively parallel large area spectroscopy from space. This workshop will gather scientists and engineers to discuss the science drivers and design optimizations for the next generation spectroscopic missions.
