PLATO Week 10

PLATO Week 10 took place from the 26th to the 28th of May 2020. The meeting was organised by the Konkoly Observatory of the Research Centre for Astronomy and Earth Sciences and the PMC, and was originally planned to be held at the Academy of Sciences in Budapest. However, as a consequence of the COVID-19 pandemic the meeting was moved online, and took place entirely virtually using WebEx.

More information about the meeting can be found on the meeting website.

Because of the online nature of the meeting, the programme was more restricted than at previous PLATO weeks, and the whole meeting was condensed into two days.

  • The PMC plenum featured a PSM status update by Paul A. Strøm from the PSM Office.
  • SGS Splinter 1 discussed the L0/L1 data processing pipeline, the performance of which the PSM are responsible for scientifically reviewing
  • SGS Splinter 2 presented an overview of the various simulators available within the PMC, and the different simulations that need to be performed. There were also discussions of the PIC and of performance aspects of the mission
  • The DPA-WG splinter provided an update on the development status of the L0/L1 data processing algorithms, focussing on the processing steps performed on the ground.
