Vansevičius Vladas - 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.

Institute of Physics,
Vladas Vansevicius, from the Institute of Physics, Vilnius, Lithuania, works on various aspects of the Gaia photometry, including the definition of the filter systems that will be used on-board the satellite, and the problems of physical classification and parameterisation based on the simulated photometric data. With Arunas Kucinskas and Jokubas Sudzius, he edited the proceedings of a Gaia workshop held in Vilnius in July 2001 entitled: Census of the Galaxy: Challenges for Photometry and Spectrometry with Gaia.
More information on the work of the group at Vilnius is available online.
