29 July 2010 A new La Silla site operations paradigm
Author Affiliations +
In 2007 ESO Council endorsed a concept to maintain the La Silla Site within the context of a streamlined operational and support scenario. La Silla remains part of the La Silla Paranal Observatory Division, and supports science projects of the ESO community using the 2.2m, NTT and 3.6m telescope. Infrastructure to host externally funded projects at national telescopes is provided. A detailed Site Operations Plan for La Silla 2010+ had been developed, and is been implemented since October 2009. We describe its implications on staffing, infrastructure, and science operations. We report our first experience gathered under this new operations paradigm.
