The Network of European Observatoires in the
is pleased to announce a workshop on Integral Field Unit observations and
data reduction. The workshop is sponsored by the European Community, Marie
and by OPTICON.
The aim of this workshop
is to provide the opportunity for potential IFU
users to obtain practical experience in observational techniques, data
reduction and analysis. Various types of IFU set-ups will be represented
(e.g., fibre instruments, lens arrays, slicers) and participants will have
the opportunity to work in small groups on data from instruments of their
choice, under the direction of experienced tutors.
The mornings will be devoted to general lectures on various technical
aspects, as well as some scientific highlights from actual observations.
The afternoons are reserved for practical work. The presence of experts in
the field will offer a unique opportunity to share experience obtained with
various IFU instruments.
The workshop is open to PhD students or PostDocs, and also to more senior
astronomers, who would like to gain first-hand experience with IFU data and
techniques. For PhD students who are nationals of a member state or
associated state of the EU, a contribution to their expenses will be
provided. Other requests for cost reimbursement will be considered on a
