Paper Abstract

SCUBA-2 is a state of the art wide field camera on the JCMT. SCUBA-2 has been fully operational since November 2011, producing a wide range of science results, including a unique series of survey programs. A new large survey programme commenced in 2015, which included for the first time, polarisation sensitive measurements using POL-2, the polarimeter ancillary instrument. We discuss proposals and the science case for upgrading SCUBA-2 with new detector arrays that will keep SCUBA-2 and the JCMT at the forefront of continuum submillimetre science.
