The PLATO Simulator (PlatoSim) is the reference simulator for PLATO, and is designed to perform realistic simulations of the expected observations of the PLATO mission. It excels at simulating pixel-level effects, and allows for the flux extraction of production of light curves.
For dedicated pipeline and data analysis aspects, other simulators exists which may be more appropriate when addressing focused questions (e.g. treatment of a light curve), rather than working on pixel level.
If you are interested in learning more about the capabilities of PlatoSim and how you can use it for your work, please consider attending the PlatoSim workshop. During the workshop you will learn about what PlatoSim can do, and how to configure and use it. The workshop is free and online.
For further information on the aim, activities and agenda of the Workshop, please refer to this Confluence page.
From 5th to 7th October 2020.
Online (a Zoom link will be provided in the Confluence page)
