This year is the 15th anniversary of Subaru Telescope, and the Subaru open-use has been in operation for nearly 14 yrs. Subaru has been continuously producing cutting-edge science thanks to its variety of unique instruments. Hyper Suprime-Cam (HSC) has started a Subaru Strategic Program (SSP) with an allocation of 300 nights over 5 yrs. The HSC-SSP is going to deliver overwhelmingly wide and yet deep imaging data, which will open new science windows in ever-growing various fields in astronomy. TMT will be built on top of Mauna-Kea with the estimated first light to be seen in early 2020's. In order for Subaru Telescope to continue and enhance its great momentum in collaboration with TMT, the Subaru community must consider and discuss seriously the strategies for Subaru in the TMT Era, including the effective use of the telescope time and the development of future instruments. Collaborations among Mauna-Kea International Observatories as well as neighbouring East Asian countries and beyond will become even more important.
Under these circumstances, we encourage the Subaru community to gather at this Users' meeting, to present their recent scientific results based on Subaru, and also to participate in the intensive discussions on the Subaru strategy of the decade. The whole meeting will be conducted in English this time.
