By combining the light from four telescopes, the European Southern Observatory Very Large Telescope Interferometer (VLTI) delivers angular resolution at milli-arcsecond scale and astrometry at tens of micro-arcsecond. The available instrumentation covers the H to N-band with low to moderately high spectral resolution.
Given that long-baseline optical interferometry observing techniques are still not widespread in the community VLTI schools are periodically organized. The next school will take place the 9th to 14th July in Lisbon and will provide practical hands-on training on observational programme preparation, data reduction and analysis.
Full lodging and subsistence costs will be provided to all attendees. Travel funding can be provided in justified cases.
Funding for this school is provided by OPTICON — Optical Infrared Coordination Network for Astronomy, from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 730890.
