ESO is organising the second part of the 2020/2021 La Silla Paranal Users Workshop. This year, the workshop consists of a series of online events, the first of which took place in early September. On March 3rd, just after the publication of the Call for Proposal for P108, ESO will (virtually) host the second part of the workshop, focussed on the proposal preparation and submission process.

If you are a La Silla Paranal Observatory user and are interested in the most up-to-date information, learning how to write competitive observing proposals and to use associated Phase 1 tools, e.g. the Exposure Time Calculator and the new p1 proposal submission tool, this second instalment of the workshop is for you!

The workshop will provide you, in a single 3hrs session, all the necessary knowledge to put your best scientific idea into an observing proposal. 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 proposal planning and submission process.

Further details are available on the workshop website.

The registration deadline is 26 February 2021 and there are no registration fees. Participants who register by this deadline will be updated about possible changes in the program and they will have the possibility to request which instruments will be used for the hands-on sessions. However, the link for the meeting will be available on the website also for non-registered participants.
