|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).
