The goal of this workshop is to provide a venue for current and future SOFIA users to learn about the observatory capabilities, to receive guidance on the design of observations and preparation of proposals, and to share their ideas about scientific investigations possible with this unique astronomical platform. The workshop is designed to inform potential users of SOFIA capabilities and to train current and potential GIs on how to best utilize SOFIA tools for the optimization of their research programs. Consequently, the workshop should be of significant use to those new to infra-red astronomy as well as experienced observers. During the workshop, particular emphasis will be placed on the Cycle 4 Call for Proposals, which is expected to be released in late April, with a deadline in late June, 2015.
