Improving JWST Data Products Workshop


This workshop will bring together experienced JWST users who have improved, extended, or superseded the STScI calibration pipeline.

The first two days will be a plenary session, where participants will concisely summarize specific issues with recent versions of STScI software/products and solutions they developed. Invited and contributed talks will cover issues and solutions that impact a broad segment of the astronomical community. Recorded talks, presentations, and supplementary material will be posted online as a reference for the community.

The second two days will be an optional hands-on session where participants will quantitatively compare output from their software with output from other participants and the STScI calibration pipeline. Relevant datasets will be made available before the event. We expect this exercise to motivate pipeline enhancements that will yield better products and/or better performance. We will make publicly available results from this session, with the goal to publish them in a peer reviewed publication.

The overarching objective of this workshop is to inform near term efforts to improve JWST data products and software for the benefit of the entire astronomical community. Separate events will provide data analysis training for the community at large.


Recording of the talks, slides, posters and the archived slack channel discussion are available at Improving JWST Data Products Workshop - JWST Event Archive - STScI Outerspace
