Workshop South American Gemini Data Workshop
In the “Gemini 2008 User Survey”, it was suggested that the process of data reduction was a bottleneck in the production of publications from Gemini data. All other user surveys pointed in the same direction. The importance of providing training in the processes involved in the reduction of data obtained by the Gemini telescopes is thus a consensus among users.
In order to improve and facilitate the data reduction processes among the Gemini users, the National Gemini Offices (NGOs) of Brazil , Argentina , and Chile , with the support of the Gemini Observatory, are pleased to announce the South American Gemini Data Workshop to be held in São José dos Campos, state of São Paulo, Brazil from 27-30 October 2011. The goal of this workshop is to promote training in the reduction of data obtained with the Gemini instruments.
The workshop is open to any interested astronomer, but is targeted more specifically to Gemini users of Argentina, Brazil, and Chile.
