  Preliminary OUTLINE Programme - v3


At the workshop we will go through the various components of the Astro-Wise Information system.

The programme is meant to introduce new users to the system, but is  also meant to review  the preparations organizers of programmes  have to undertake to run own projects or Surveys with the system.

Times are indicative, programme will be very flexible. In principle afternoons are reserved for short demos and working in groups on exercises.

Participants are supposed to have some basic knowledge of the Python scripting language see  http://www.python.org/doc/current/tut/tut.html
