Abstract
We present a discussion of the design issues and trade-offs that have been considered in putting together a new concept for MOSAIC,1, 2 the multi-object spectrograph for the E-ELT. MOSAIC aims to address the combined science cases for E-ELT MOS that arose from the earlier studies of the multi-object and multi-adaptive optics instruments (see MOSAIC science requirements in [3]). MOSAIC combines the advantages of a highly-multiplexed instrument targeting single-point objects with one which has a more modest multiplex but can spatially resolve a source with high resolution (IFU). These will span across two wavebands: visible and near-infrared.
