  1. An AstroDrizzle mini-workshop will be offered the morning of August 14th, following the main calibration workshop. This three-hour session will include drizzling tutorials and hands-on assistance with your HST imaging data. A development version of DrizzlePac (v.1.2.0) will be available for use, and we will showcase several new software features. As the workshop approaches, late-breaking news and instructions on how to obtain the latest software will be posted to the DrizzlePac Webpage. Contact Jennifer Mack, if you have any questions.
  2. A mini-workshop on “Improvements to COS Calibration” will be held the morning of August 14th to discuss wavelength calibration, backgrounds, flat fields, and pulse height filtering. In addition to general discussions of these topics, we will be especially looking for inputs from the community, including what issues they have encountered and what solutions have worked for them. The schedule for presentations is posted here. Contact Cristina Oliveira if you have any questions.
