INTEGRAL Science Data Centre
First INTEGRAL Data Analysis Workshop

October 5-6. 2004, Geneva, Switzerland

The Workshop will take place shortly after the public release of the first-year data. The main aim of the Workshop is to provide the detailed introduction into OSA (Off-line Scientific Analysis) for (potential) users. Participants do not have to have any specific knowlegde of the data analysis techniques: a step-by-step introduction into the INTEGRAL data will be presented during the Workshop.

The organization of the Workshop will be on the 2 day + 2 day scheme. The first two days will be devoted to the presentation of the software and analysis techniques. During the last two days participants who want to get practical experience in the data analysis will have an opportunity to use the computer facilities at ISDC and/or to have help in instalation and set-up of OSA software.
