Parallel sessions will start at 14.00. Sessions are divided by technical area. Participants interested in attending the sessions should register in advance by sending an email to the organization.
The objective of the sessions is to allow ESO experts to get acquainted with the capabilities of Portuguese industry and academia, in order that an informal discussion takes place about the technical challenges and opportunities at ESO in the short and medium-term (eg. for the Extremely European Large Telescope “E-ELT”). Participants should be prepared to present themselves orally to ESO experts (3 min. maximum).
