ESA JWST Master Class Workshops

 

The European Space Astronomy Center (ESAC) in Madrid will host the ESA JWST Master Class on 3-5 February 2020. During this 2.5 day workshop JWST experts will train selected researchers from ESA member states on JWST proposal planning tools, resources and documentation so they can share their knowledge with other scientists across all Europe. The selected participants to the ESA JWST Master Class will organize JWST workshops in the local institutions between February and April 2020 to support the preparation of proposals for the JWST Cycle 1. 

The map on the riight shows the expected locations of JWST local workshops that will be organized by the ESA JWST Master Class graduates in the period February-April 2020.

 

 

 

The tables below list the selected participants, their affiliation and the proposed location for the local workshops.  The information regarding the local workshops will be updated in October when the plan is finalized.
