Users Committee Meeting 2018

Published: 25 Feb 2018

The Users Committee (UC) represents ESO's astronomical community at large and acts as an advisory body to the ESO Director General on matters related to the performance, scientific access, operation and user interfaces to the La Silla Paranal Observatory and ALMA. The annual meeting of the UC is scheduled at ESO Headquarters on 26-27 April 2018. During the UC meeting updates from ESO and feedback from the user community are exchanged and openly discussed. Each year, the UC meeting has one session dedicated to a special topic – in 2018 the special topic is the future of ALMA User Support.

As in the past, the UC plans to probe the community for feedback via a specifically designed poll that is completely independent from ESO. The UC welcomes input through the national contacts. The users from non-member states can get in contact with the UC through the committee co-chairs. The names of the UC co-chairs and the list of representatives for ESO Member States and Chile are available via the 2018 UC web page.
