About The Event
The Hubble Space Telescope (HST) has been operating with its final complement of instruments since 2009. In addition, three of the instruments to be flown onboard the James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) have just been delivered, and the final two will be completed soon. It is therefore a perfect time to hold a workshop emphasizing calibrations that are required to maximally exploit the capabilities of both observatories. This is also an opportunity to assess any additional calibrations needed to ensure that the current HST and future JWST archives are robust and as scientifically valuable as possible.
In addition to these observatory specific themes, the workshop will address topics that apply broadly to astronomical calibration in general, and to more focused cross-observatory calibration.
The Space Telescope Science Institute (STScI) will host the 2013 STScI Calibration Workshop on April 8-11, 2013. Our goal is to foster the sharing of information and techniques between observers, instrument support teams, and instrument developers. Two and one-half days of the meeting will be dedicated to plenary presentations from invited and contributing speakers. One and one-half days will be dedicated to specialized breakout sessions. Contributed posters will be displayed throughout the workshop. The schedule includes ample time for discussion after each plenary presentation and during breakout sessions, as well as many opportunities for exchange during lunch and coffee breaks.
Registration for the Workshop is $47. There will also be a Tapas Feast on Tuesday night. The cost will be $52; please be sure to sign up for the Tapas Feast at the time of registration. You may register for the Workshop at the link on the left.
During the registration process, you may enter an abstract for a contributed poster. You may also add an abstract at a later date. Please be advised that:
On-line registration deadline: March 8, 2013
Abstract submission deadline: March 15, 2013
