The target is the whole community potentially interested in the exploitation of Gaia for Solar System science, in particular young scientists, students, and, more in general, newcomers into the Gaia world. We expect to present and discuss practical information on the use of Gaia data, work in progress, and potential problems encountered by the users. Feel free to share this announcement with your colleagues.

Participation will be hybrid on a remote connection. Only people on site at Observatoire de la Côte d'Azur, Nice, including two scientists visiting OCA in September, A. Cellino (INAF/Torino) and K. Muinonen (Univ. Helsinki), will be physically present.

Where : the NEF at the CION building of OCA (you can come if you are in Nice, in the limit of available places)
