Abstract
We present the instrumentation plan of the 10.4m Gran Telescopio Canarias (GTC) until 2019. It includes a suite of instruments covering a wide wavelength range (from 350 to 2000 nm), with imaging, multiplexed (MOS, IFUs, and Fabry-Perot) spectroscopy at a resolution up to R=30000, polarimetric capabilities, and adaptive optics correction. Up to six instruments will be simultaneously available, taking advantage of five, full-equipped and interchangeable focal configurations of GTC, which include one Main Cassegrain focus, two Nasmyth platforms, and two Folded-Cassegrain foci.
