As a complement to the official program of the focus meeting, we are organising a “Software / hack day” splinter session on August 6th. This session is to enable authors of software packages that are useful for the analysis of exoplanet datasets to present them, and participants to try them out with the authors on hand to help and advise them. The format will consist of short talks in the morning, and a free-form, hands on session in the afternoon.
The program of the morning session is given below, including download links to the software packages for those who want to come ready to test things out. All the authors will be on hand to talk to participants during the afternoon.
The splinter session will take place in room 324 at the Convention Center, from 9 am to 4:30 pm.
