Serraller Vizcaino Iñaki - Gaia
Gaia was proposed in 1993 and since then, many people have been involved in the Gaia mission, whether at ESA, at industry side or at one of the institutes involved in the Gaia data processing. The Gaia Data Processing and Analysis Consortium (DPAC) is a collaboration which consists of around 450 scientists and engineers.
The list of Gaia contributors presented here should not be considered a complete representation of the entire consortium. A more complete list of Gaia contributors that were involved in the creation of the Gaia catalogues can be obtained from the author lists of the Gaia Collaboration papers (for Gaia Data Release 1 see here, for Gaia Data Release 2 see here, for Gaia Early Data Release 3 see here). A history of contributions to the Gaia mission can be found from the acknowledgements given with each data release.

Iñaki Serraller Vizcaino
Iñaki Serraller is employed by the Madrid software company GMV, based in the suburb of Tres Cantos to the north of the city. Since 1999, GMV is under contract to ESA to study a development platform for the Gaia data analysis, with the aim of demonstrating the feasibility of a data base driven, global iterative solution of the Gaia data. As a software engineer with GMV, Iñaki is taking the primary responsibility for the on-going improvement of the prototype system, and the integration of the community supplied algorithms into it in the context of the GDAAS (Gaia data access and analysis system) study. He works closely with the scientific group in Barcelona. The current ESA contract ends at the end of 2004, by which time ESA and the scientific community hope to have confidence in the mass treatment of the vast quantity of data that will be generated by the satellite.
