Abstract

In March, ESO organised the La Silla Paranal Users Workshop, providing current and future users of its observatories with an overview of the available instruments, as well as the most commonly used tools and processes at ESO, from proposal submission to data reduction and data archive. One full day of the event was dedicated to hands- on data reduction tutorials and one-to-one sessions between participants and ESO staff to work jointly on the issues brought up by the participants. The workshop attracted about 50 on-site participants as well as a dozen remote attendees, mostly from Australia.
