VLTI-HOW: The VLTI High angular resolution Observations Workshop

Published: 08 Jul 2022

A  VLTI-HOW: The VLTI High angular resolution Observations Workshop will take place at ESO Vitacura, Santiago, Chile on 10-21 October 2022. This ESO/IAU predominantly hands-on workshop aims at training a new generation of scientists from Chile and Latin American countries in how to access, analyse, and use Very Large Telescope Interferometer (VLTI) data for their research projects. The curriculum will also cover topics important for career development such as proposal and grant writing, job hunting, and work ethics. Moreover, the workshop will encourage new scientific collaborations across nations.

ESO's Very Large Telescope Interferometer (VLTI) is the state of the art of Infrared Interferometry. With its second-generation instruments (PIONIER, GRAVITY, MATISSE) and undergoing a major upgrade, the VLTI will play a key-role in the ELT era and beyond 2030. The workshop is specifically addressed at last year undergraduates, master students, Ph.D. students, post-doctoral fellows and young researchers from Latin America. 

Applications can now be submitted. More information can be found in the VLTI-HOW workshop Web site.
