Abstract

The 9th Very Large Telescope Interferometer (VLTI) school guided participants through the process of acquiring and analysing VLTI observations from end to end, encompassing a range of steps, from scientific programme design to data reduction and exploration. This school was jointly funded by OPTICON (through the European Interferometry Initiative [EII]) and ESO. In total, 37 students participated and 15 lecturers were involved, ensuring broad coverage of topics. Continuous feedback was gathered throughout the school and the lecturers worked hard to fine-tune the programme using input from the students.
