Workshop postponed

Due to a number of reasons, this workshop has been postponed until further announcement


This is a JAO-ESO Paranal/La Silla/APEX event focused on fostering collaborations between observatories through the preparation of common JWST proposals. It would be organized in two mornings:

  1. Tuesday - general presentations on JWST instrumentation, what it can do for your science, and present practical science cases, so we can have a good idea on the JWST potential.
  2. Wednesday - discussion sessions between Paranal/APEX/JAO staff, where everyone can bring their ideas/objects/science case to be done with JWST and discuss among us. This is then followed by a presentation and a hands-on session on the JWST Observing Tool and Exposure Time Calculator

For reference, the call for proposals is already open, and the deadline will be on 24th November.


On the first day, a general zoom link will be announced. For the discussions, multiple ones will be provided. A Slack channel will be set, so different groups can continue different discussions. TBD

Participants input

In order to organize the working groups, we need you to fill this Doodle poll TBD. Please, select your science topic of interest.
