Establishment of a Data Analysis Coordination Committee
27 June 2005
The first meeting of the Data Analysis Coordination Committee (DACC) was held at ESTEC on 15 and 16 June. The DACC was formally set up by the GST at its 15th meeting in April 2005 and is charged with defining and putting into place the Gaia Data Analysis Consortium (GDAC). The GDAC is expected to start operating in mid-2006 and will conceive, implement and operate the Gaia data processing system. The main tasks of the DACC are to design a workable structure for the data processing and to match the community interests (as expressed by the Letters of Intent) to the required tasks.
