This meeting will describe the proposal opportunity and provide information to prospective users about proposal submission and review procedures. It will also describe the set of instruments to be made available in the proposal call and the status of software that will be available for reduction of data from these instruments.

This meeting will describe several new LMT instruments due to be commissioned during the 2020-2021 observing season at the LMT, including the TolTEC instrument. The status and expected schedule for installation of instruments will be described along with plans for data reduction pipelines.
