INTEGRAL Science Data Centre
Third INTEGRAL Data Analysis Workshop

October 18-20. 2006, Geneva, Switzerland

The main goals of the workshop will be to introduce basic data analysis techniques and new developments in the 6th version of Offline Sicence Analysis (OSA) software package. A special attention will be given to the improved interface of the INTEGRAL data archive, which in its new form will contain a large amount of "ready-to-use" data (images,spectra, lightcurves) on most of the galactic and extragalactic hard X-ray sources detected by INTEGRAL over the 4-year operation time.

The workshop will be organized as a series of presentations on each of the INTEGRAL instruments (ISGRI, SPI, JEM-X and OMC) followed by the hands-on practical sessions. Particupants will be able to use the computer facilities at ISDC and/or to get support for OSA software installation and set-up.
