Space and Ground-based Observatories have followed different approaches to the problem of monitoring, calibrating and understanding their Scientific Instruments. However, with the increasing complexity of the new Ground-based Instrumentation, this cultural and operational gap is gradually disappearing. This Workshop, starting from a review of the level and effectiveness of the calibration procedures which are currently adopted by the refurbished HST and by the ESO main Instruments, is aimed at highlighting the remaining differences and will provide guidelines for the development of operational procedures and software tools to be used in the VLT era. The core programme will include invited reviews followed by round-table discussions; a limited number of contributed papers / posters will also be selected.
