Subaru Telescope Software and Science Operation Team
Chile Visit 2003

Subaru Software Team (Dr. T. Sasaki, Dr. G. Kosugi, Mr. M. Weber, and Dr. J. Noumaru) visited Observatories in Chile during 25 Feb., 2003 to 7 March, 2003 as part of their survey activities on software of major astronomical facilities.
The Team is interested in learning about organization structure for operations, software development, maintenance, service observation, scheduling tools, etc.
It would be very useful if they could view telescope and instrument control GUIs of VLT, VLTI and other telescopes, and view the computer system at the observatories.
It would also be useful to know how the observatory is operated and staffed. For instance, job title and tasks of operation staff; work schedules and special pay or fringe benefits for night or altitude work, etc.
The Subaru Software Team's schedule is as follows:
