Good morning everyone,

Happy 2018! As the ESO Users Committee representative, I would like to encourage Australia-based astronomers to register for the La Silla Paranal Users Workshop (https://protect-au.mimecast.com/s/ahzyCgZowLHwp9p0TNmLmf?domain=eso.org, see email from the organisers below).

The organisers have mentioned that if sufficiently many attendees request remote attendance, they would do their best to make it happen. If you register (https://protect-au.mimecast.com/s/EcrwCjZrzqHGP8P5IRWPI6?domain=eso.org) and would like to attend remotely, please send an email to lpousers at eso.org<mailto:lpousers at eso.org> (also cc me so I know the numbers) stating that you wish to do so. There is no need to pay the registration fee if you are requesting remote attendance.

Furthermore, if the workshop is offered remotely (TBC by ESO), the International Telescopes Support Office (ITSO) has offered to provide a videoconferencing room at the Australian Astronomical Observatory headquarters in North Ryde, NSW for the event. Thanks to the generosity of the ITSO, complimentary catering will be provided. Australian based expert observers and past ESO users will be present at the AAO to help with the hands-on aspect of the workshop. If you would like to take advantage of this opportunity, please email me by 5 March for catering purposes.

Finally, I will be circulating the ESO Users Committee Poll next month. This will be a great opportunity to give feedback on various aspects of your experience so far as ESO users. Answers will be compiled into a report in preparation for the UC meeting in April. Stay tuned!

Clear skies!

Dear colleagues,

We would like to bring to your attention the upcoming La Silla Paranal Users Workshop scheduled in ESO Garching, Germany from 12-14 March 2018, and its upcoming early registration deadline which we have extended till 22 January.

This workshop will provide an opportunity for users to have hands-on experience on topics of their choice, including, but not restricted to, help with data reduction (both for own data and tutorials on selected instruments), help in proposal writing, finding information on the ESO web, installing ESO software, help in observation preparation, and using the Science Archive either to access data or return reduced data to the archive.

If you are a La Silla Paranal Observatory user and are interested in a face-to-face contact with the various support services at ESO, this workshop is for you. This workshop will provide you with the necessary knowledge to make the most out of ESO data and thereby provide a strong momentum to your science.

Please note that the early registration deadline is 22 January 2018. 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) they would like to further explore. Later registrations will be accepted but with no commitment to adjust the programme to individual requests. There is no registration fee for students. For other participants, there is a small registration fee (50 EUR), if payment is made before the early registration deadline.

Please forward this email to colleagues you think would be interested.

Thank you in advance and looking forward to seeing you in Garching in March.

Kind regards,

M. Rejkuba and H. Boffin
on behalf of the LPO Users Workshop organising committee
