Abstract

The UKIDSS Galactic Cluster Survey (GCS) was suggested as a way of providing homogenous data on a number of open star clusters, star forming regions, and associations to aid in determining the shape of the initial mass function (IMF) in the substellar regime. We describe the goals, design and some highlights of the GCS.
