Operations BoF at the ADASS

Submitter: Yan Grange
Description: During the last Astronomical Data Analysis Software and Systems (ADASS) conference, we organised a Birds of a Feather* session. The goal of this session was to bring together people involved in the operations of large, distributed radio interferometers and share their experience with each other, and the audience.

The session was very informative and it is clear that mananging a telescope that heavily depends on computing is a complex task. We concluded that we share many concerns and exchanged information on how the different groups manage to tackle some of those issues.

The interested reader can have a look at the session here. A summary of the points discussed will appear in the proceedings of the conference. The submitted manuscript can be accessed via arXiv).
