Participation in ADASS'11

Nicolas Cardiel at ADASS 2011

The Astronomical Data Analysis Software and Systems (ADASS) conference has been held this year in Paris. GUAIX has been represented in this conference with the participation of Nicolás Cardiel.

He has presented one poster entitled TESELA: a new Virtual Observatory tool to determine blank fields. This work, developed in collaboration with F.M. Jiménez-Esteban, J.M. Alacid, E. Solano and M. Aberasturi (from the Centro de Astrobiología, INTA-CSIC), describes the method followed by their authors to generate the largest blank field catalogues available for astronomical observations to date. The catalogues are accessible through the Virtual Observatory, with the help of the interface TESELA.

Second Science Team Meeting of MEGARA

The Second Science Team Meeting of MEGARA has been successfully held at INAOE (Instituto Nacional de Astrofísica, Optica y Electrónica -
Tonantzintla, Puebla, México) on September 26th-28th 2011.
During the meeting the science team discussed about the Science Cases for MEGARA and re-define the instrument requirements and observing modes.
