ESO Workshop, Garching, Germany, 5 – 9 October 2015
Since the start of VLT science operations, about 15% of science time has been allocated to Large Programmes. In the last five years, the ESO Public Surveys on VISTA, VST, VLT and NTT, have vastly increased the public data delivered by La Silla Paranal telescopes. The scientific research of these Programmes and Surveys covers all areas of observational astronomy. This workshop will focus on the scientific results achieved through these programmes and the potential for enhanced exploitation of the archival data.
