Gemini is pleased to announce the 2009 Gemini Users Meeting that will be held at Kyoto University, Kyoto Japan, in conjunction with the Joint Subaru/Gemini Science Conference.

The main goal of the Users Meeting is to provide an opportunity for Gemini's community to provide feedback to the Observatory on both short-term operational issues and long-term strategic issues such as future instrumentation.
