2nd Announcement: Workshop on ISOPHOT P22 and P40 raster observations Dear ISO Observer, the ISO Data Center (IDC), located at ESA's Villafranca del Castillo Satellite Tracking Station near Madrid (Spain), is organizing a hands-on workshop dedicated to the processing and analysis of ISOPHOT raster mapping observations performed in the AOT modes P22 (C100 and C200 cameras) or P40 (PHT-S spectrometer). The intention of the workshop is to provide direct expert support to ISO observers who have used these modes. Most recent calibration knowledge and data reduction techniques will be addressed during the workshop. Facilities and support from the resident staff will be offered at the IDC during the workshop. Dedicated software packages for processing of raster observations will be available through the ISOPHOT Interactive Analysis for assessment of specific imaging and photometry issues. This workshop is held the week immediately before the workshop "ISO beyond point sources: studies of extended infrared emission" (September 14-17) also to be held at the IDC. This arrangement offers the possibility to attend both workshops without extra travel overhead. Please find below more information on the scope and timeline of the workshop. With this letter we solicit feedback from you. Please send your reply to: firstname.lastname@example.org by August 15 1999. ========================== =============== Looking forward to your reply, with kind regards, Carlos Gabriel and Bernhard Schulz ISO Data Centre, VILSPA =============================================================================== Details about the ISOPHOT P22/P40 Mapping Workshop Time and Location ----------------- The workshop will be held in the ISO Data Centre in Villafranca del Castillo, Spain, in the period September 6-10, 1999. Since we plan to include also data reduction sessions using our computer facilities the number of participants would have to be limited to a maximum of 10 people. Scope ----- During the 5 days workshop we will offer general overviews of the ISO P22/P40 raster observations, presentations on the instrument calibration of ISOPHOT and on the data reduction software PIA, putting special accent on different mapping techniques, as well as on a package for simulating all kind of mapping observations, as performed by ISOPHOT. Voluntary presentations of the participants programmes, including difficulties encountered so far by the data reduction and calibration will be possible. Dedicated "hands-on" sessions supported by data reduction experts and calibration scientists will constitute the central part of the program and ample time to discuss the outcome of these sessions will be available. Proceedings will be published on the ISO WWW and in paper form via the IDC preprint series. We plan to customize the sessions as far as possible to the needs of the participants, thus the detailed agenda will depend on your feedback. Please contact helpdesk for arrangements concerning lodging and transportation.
