Some 200 astronomers, scientists, engineers and programmers from the Data Processing and Analysis Consortium (DPAC) of the Gaia mission, met in Sitges from 23 to 27 January 2017. During this meeting, experts from various units and centers had the opportunity to share their progress in the mission and the results obtained so far, including those obtained from the first publication of the data made just last September. Upcoming tasks of development and implementation were also discussed, especially for the next publication and beyond. The large attendance, the several parallel meetings, and the results shown at the meeting all attest to the excellent progress of the mission and the smooth functioning of the consortium.
