The Second La Silla Paranal Users Workshop – Optimising Science Output

Published: 17 Feb 2020

ESO Headquarters, Garching, Germany, 7–9 September 2020 

If you are a La Silla Paranal Observatory user and are interested in face-to-face contact with ESO experts working on various support services, this workshop is for you! The workshop will provide you with all the necessary knowledge to make the most out of ESO data and thereby strengthen your science. It will also give you the possibility to directly interact with ESO staff to answer questions you may have on any aspect of the La Silla and Paranal data workflows, from improving the technical side of your proposals to preparing your observations, reducing data, and/or using the ESO archive. The workshop will also provide timely preparation ahead of the Call for Proposals for Period 107. Further details are available on the workshop website.

The deadline for early registration is 3 July 2020. Participants who register by this deadline will have the possibility to shape the second part of the workshop, reserved for hands-on experience and tutorials, by indicating which area of the programme (Phase1, Phase2, data reduction or archive) they would like to explore further. They will also be able to request a one-to-one session with an ESO expert in any aspect of the La Silla Paranal data workflow.

Later registrations will be accepted until the number of participants has reached the limit. However, there is no commitment to adjust the programme to individual requests at that stage.

Note that there is no registration fee for students.
