Report on the IAU Hands-on Workshop: The VLTI High angular resolution Observations Workshop
No. 190 (March 2023), 67–69
As part of the International Astronomical Union’s Hands-On Workshops (I-HOW) initiative, ESO Chile organised the first international Very Large Telescope Interferometer (VLTI) workshop in Vitacura. The main goal was to train young scientists from Latin American countries in accessing, analysing and using VLTI archival data for their research projects. Through a series of lectures on interferometry and instrumentation, science, and soft skills, followed by practical hands-on sessions, the attendees were given the tools they needed to start using VLTI data for their own research. The workshop provided the perfect environment in which to build a network between VLTI specialists and future users and it furnished a great experience for all the participants, students, teachers and organisers alike.
