Sep 27 : Re-organization of the Subnode's home page
Sep 1 : Ágnes Kóspál joins the ISOPHOT group for a voluntary practikum work. Her topic is the analysis of ISOPHOT observations of FU Orionis objects.
Sep 1 : Szilárd Csizmadia joins the ISOPHOT group with a full time contract for two years. His work is related to the Archive projects conducted jointly by the ISO Data Centre (VilSpa) and the Konkoly Observatory.
Jul 22 : The Konkoly - IDC contract "Technical assistance for ISO Active Archive Phase" is signed
Jun 24-27 : Participation in the conference "Exploiting the ISO Data Archive - Infrared Astronomy in the Internet Age", 24-27 June 2002, Sigüenza, Spain (P. Ábrahám, Cs. Kiss, A. Moór). Presentations can be seen here.
