Herschel cycle I AO workshop

Posted by Jinzeng Li at April 21. 2010

Herschel Cycle 1 Open Time Observation Planning Workshops (HSC/NHSC)
If you are interested in submitting an OT1 proposal in the next Open Time call and you want to learn more about Herschel observing opportunities and how to prepare and submit a proposal using HSpot and other available observation planning tools you are invited to attend the:

  "Herschel Cycle 1 Open Time Observation Planning Workshop"

to be held on 3-4 June 2010 in ESAC, Madrid. The workshop will include an overview of the Herschel mission with special attention to Herschel operations and how they affect observation planning, instrument presentations with a detailed description of the available observing modes and their use for particular science goals, and practical demonstrations on the use of HSpot.

For information about logistics, and registration instructions,  you can visit the workshop website at:

In coordination with the Herschel Science Centre (HSC), the NASA Herschel Science Centre (NHSC) is organising, on the same dates (3-4 June 2010),  a similar workshop in Pasadena, California, for the US community of Herschel users. In this case a preliminary agenda and registration information can be found at:

Please note that in both cases space is limited, and registration will close on Monday, 24 May 2010.

SPIRE FTS Workshop @ University College, London
The SPIRE instrument team would like to invite you to a one day workshop to introduce the capabilities of the SPIRE Fourier Transform Spectrometer as demonstrated during the first year of Herschel operations. During the day examples will be given of the different observing programmes that are possible with the instrument. The meeting will discuss the achievable sensitivity and observing strategies and promote use of the FTS in the upcoming call for Herschel Open Time. The day will consist of a series of presentations by instrument and data processing experts, as well as by users, illustrating the instrument capabilities, as demonstrated in Guaranteed Time programmes. The instrument and data processing experts will be available to answer questions and advise on the best way of executing your proposed observing programme and to discuss possible science programmes.

Date : 13th May 2010
Location: University College London
Registration: To register interest please e-mail Bruce.Swinyard and cc. Edward.Polehampton, both at, with 'SPIRE FTS Meeting' in the subject line. They will circulate details of the location, accommodation, etc once they have an indication of the level of interest.

Important note on the upcoming release of HIPE 3.0
It is foreseen that, in the next few days, HIPE 3.0, the new version of the Herschel Interactive Processing Environment now undergoing final acceptance testing, will be rolled out to the users community.

We would like to ask you to be prepared to migrate to this new version of HIPE as soon as it becomes available, as you will need to use HIPE 3.0 to access any Herschel data retrieved from the HSA processed with this new version of the instrument pipelines, once this new version becomes operational.

The performance of the data storage pools was improved in HIPE 3.0, which will need to convert your data storage pools to a new format. In case you want to continue using them with HIPE 2.x. you are recommended to back up your old data pools.

More details will be given as part of the release note for HIPE 3.0
