The 1997 HST Calibration Workshop
with a New Generation of Instruments
September 22-24, 1997
Space Telescope Science Institute, Baltimore, Maryland
are now available online
The Second Servicing Mission brought about major changes for the HST as
the new Space Telescope Imaging Spectrograph (STIS) and Near-Infrared
Camera and Multi-Object Spectrometer (NICMOS) replace the Faint Object
Spectrograph (FOS) and Goddard High Resolution Spectrograph (GHRS), and
the Fine Guidance Sensors were upgraded. The Third HST Calibration Workshop
will capture the impact of these changes and explore the new capabilities
that they bring to the HST user community.
This meeting provides a forum to wrap up outstanding calibration issues
for the FOS and GHRS as they enter their archival phase. It is also
an opportunity to present major results from the new instruments during
the Servicing Mission Observatory Verification (SMOV) phase, providing
the first performance measurements. New calibrations and observing and
data reduction techniques will be presented for the continuing
instruments: the Faint Object Camera (FOC) and Wide Field Planetary
Camera 2 (WFPC2).
The workshop will be held over three full days
at STScI, and will include invited talks, contributed posters, and
splinter sessions for more detailed technical discussions.
Proceedings of the workshop will be published
before the end of 1997.
