Herschel Data Processing Workshop 2012

Herschel Data Processing Workshop 2012 poster

ESAC, Villafranca del Castillo, Madrid
20 February 2012 (Introductory session)
21-22 February 2012 (PACS instrument)
23-24 February 2012 (SPIRE & HIFI instruments)


The Herschel Space Observatory is the fourth cornerstone mission in the ESA science "Horizon 2000" plan. It carries a 3.5 meter passively cooled telescope, and performs imaging photometry and spectrometry in the far-infrared and submillimetre part of the spectrum, covering the 55-672 micrometres range. The science payload consists of three instruments which are provided by consortia led by Principal Investigators: The Heterodyne Instrument for the Far-Infrared, HIFI, whose PI is F. Helmich, SRON, Groningen, The Netherlands; the Photodetector Array Camera and Spectrometer, PACS, whose PI is A. Poglitsch, MPE, Garching, Germany; and the Spectral and Photometric Imaging REceiver, SPIRE, whose PI is M. Griffin, Cardiff University, UK. Herschel is the first space facility dedicated to the submillimetre and far-infrared, and is being operated as a multiuser astronomical observatory that provides observation opportunities to the entire astronomical community.

Successfully launched together with Planck on 14 May 2009, Herschel has recently entered the third and last full year of Routine Phase Operations, in which OT1 programmes will be completed and extensive schedule of successful GT2/OT2 programmes will commence.


This workshop, organised by the Herschel Science Centre, in collaboration with the Instrument Control Centres and the NASA Herschel Science Centre, is targeted at an audience of active HIPE users involved in the data reduction of successful OT1 programmes who want to get a deeper knowledge of the interactive processing of Herschel data for the analysis of the OT1 observations that they are now collecting.

The workshop will include overview talks about the Herschel Interactive Processing Environment (HIPE) and demos addressing a wide variety of hot data reduction topics, including hands-on sessions in which the participants will have the opportunity to work on their own data supported in person by instrument experts. The first day of the workshop will be devoted to people who are relatively new to HIPE, while the rest of the days in the week will be oriented to more advanced users.
