Speaker: 
Erwin de Blok (MHONGOOSE, UCT), Sarah Blyth (LADUMA!, UCT), George Heald (HALOGAS, ASTRON) and Paolo Serra (MeerKAT Fornax Survey, ASTRON)

This workshop will comprise two 30-minute sessions with a brief coffee break in between.

The participating scientists will be Erwin de Blok (MHONGOOSE, UCT), Sarah Blyth (LADUMA!, UCT), George Heald (HALOGAS, ASTRON) and Paolo Serra (MeerKAT Fornax Survey, ASTRON), and they will be responding to a series of questions about how to PI a large survey.

We'd like to have as much discussion as possible. This workshop is meant to be informal yet informative - we want to address all of the stuff that no-one ever tells you (but always expect that you know!).
