The Gaia Data Analysis Coordination Committee (2005 - 2006)


The Gaia Data Analysis Coordination Committee (DACC) was established in April 2005 with the task of leading the formation of a Gaia Data Processing and Analysis Consortium (DPAC) over the following 1–2 years. It reported to the Gaia Science Team, and was responsible for devising a consortium structure based on studies of the data analysis carried out since 2001, as well as for collecting the Letters of Intent to participate in the Gaia data processing submitted by the community to ESA in March 2005. In June 2006 the DACC was dissolved by the GST, having successfully fulfilled its role; this marked the formal transition to the Gaia DPAC.
