Programme for the Herschel Lessons Learned Meeting: "Operations from Cradle to Grave"

May 28-30, 2013 @ESAC Room D1+D2

The meeting emphasises discussion.

Discussion will be fuelled by proposed "Lessons" recorded before (and during; and after) the meeting. at:

[There are subsidiary pages maintained by the ICCs, that should later be ported to the central system, at:

The programme will be expanded into greater detail by the Session Moderators.

The duties of the moderator go far beyond the duties of a normal session chair in a conference.

The session moderator :==>

  • Reports to the HSOCG through the HSCOG Chair (L. Metcalfe)
  • Takes full responsibility for preparing the Session: The Agenda for the Session is the responsibility of the Moderator
  • Liaises in advance, as necessary, with any speakers for the session
  • Screens the "Lessons" repositories for items relevant to their session, and thus
  • Prepares an agenda for the session; stimulates and moderates the discussion of the session, and
  • Produces after the meeting, a written report with conclusions and lessons learned for the Session.
