TANGO at INAF meeting - Trieste

INAF - Astronomical Observatory of Trieste
Villa Bazzoni Building - Via Bazzoni, 2 - TRIESTE
Tuesday 1 - Wednesday 2 April 2014


The TANGO@INAF Workshop aims at gathering together all main actors of the Italian Astronomical community and some of the TANGO collaboration rappresentatives engaged in activities related to distributed control systems and data archiving. The workshop is expected to last one and a half day plus a visit to Elettra.

The following topics will be discussed:

  1. Current status of TANGO developments in INAF, with particular reference to implementation done for Archiving System and test applications;

  2. Current implementations in Synchrotron Radiation Sources;

  3. Perspectives and future plans of maintenance/development of the TANGO core and devices;

  4. TANGO performances;

  5. Contacts and contact persons;

  6. Activities in the near future.

Interaction between different communities is encouraged, since many benefits can come from a strong partnership with national and international scientific communities.


The TANGO@INAF meeting will take place at INAF - Astronomical Observatory of Trieste.
