Phase 2 Users Workshops (archive)

In 2013 the Phase 2 Proposal Preparation tool version 3 (P2PP3) was introduced for all Paranal telescopes. This new upgrade of the Phase 2 tool includes new important concepts on how Observation Blocks can be linked together. Please refer to the documentation for P2PP 3 for more details.

In 2013 the User Support Department organized two Phase 2 Users Workshops to provide to participants an overview of the Phase 2 process, resources and tools, as well as a hands-on tutorial and face-to-face assistance with the preparation of the Phase 2 material. The presentations from those workshops are available here.
