EVENT: ESO La Silla Paranal Users Workshop 2020

Dates: Monday 7 and Tuesday 8 September 2020
ESO is organising the next La Silla Paranal Users Workshop<https://protect-au.mimecast.com/s/DPhhCjZ1N7iV4LLjsW0DLl?domain=eso.org> as a series of online events. Part 1 will take place on Monday 7 and Tuesday 8 September 2020.

If you are a La Silla Paranal Observatory user and are interested in:

  *   the most up-to-date information
  *   learning how to use the ESO Science Archive Facility, and
  *   reducing ESO data or "face-to-face" contact with ESO experts working on various support services…

…then this is the workshop is for you! Further aspects on the various available instruments, the preparation of proposals and of the observations of the approved program will be dealt with in Part 2 and Part 3, foreseen to happen in 2021.

ESO Workshop – Part 1
Part 1 of the ESO Workshop series will provide the chance for users to have hands-on experience on topics of their choice, including but not restricted to:

  *   finding information on the ESO web
  *   installing ESO software
  *   running the ESO pipelines, and
  *   using the Science Archive Facility either to access data or return reduced data to the archive.

For this, participants are invited at registration to indicate areas of the program (preferred instruments, tools usage, etc.) they would like to further explore. Participants will then be split in groups, according to interest, or be provided with one-to-one sessions on a best-efforts basis.

Each day will contain a couple of hours of presentations by videoconference, starting at the (not completely unreasonable) time of 10pm Sydney time, 8pm Perth time. This will be accompanied by an hour or so of “Bring Your Own Problem” time for face-to-face support with ESO data reduction.
