2nd Generation Instrumentation Pipelines

18/19 April 2007, at MPE, in the large seminar room (1.1.18b)

Map of Garching and the Institute - about 30mins walk, or 1 stop on the U-bahn.
There is also some additional visitor information available.


  • identify where instrument consortia can benefit from each other's experience (although detailed follow-up would probably be later)
  • ensure that ESO's tools & libraries are matched to needs of the consortia; and that the consortia understand what these tools are designed to do and how to use them
  • clear up any questions regarding the implementation of a pipeline using CPL
