The workshop will be divided in two talk sessions and a plenary discussion session.

The first talk session, “Key Projects in São Paulo”  will address current and future radio astronomical facilities in the State or with the leadership of researchers from SP. In this session, there will be 6 presentations of 20 min each (15+5), followed by discussions.

After lunch, it is time for the “Science Projects” session, with 13 presentations of 10 min each (including questions). The aim of these presentations is to make our community aware of the science interests and activities of the participants. They are NOT regular full presentations of science results.

The workshop will finish with a plenary session, where we will discuss actions to improve the community collaboration synergy and how to maximize the scientific output and training opportunities in the field considering current and new facilities. We will welcome suggestions and proposals of actions to boost radio astronomy in São Paulo.
