ALMA Ambassadors Cycle 11 Proposal Preparation Events

In advance of the Atacama Large Millimeter /submillimeter Array (ALMA) Cycle 11 Call for Proposals deadline, the North American ALMA Science Center (NAASC), along with current ALMA Ambassadors, have organized a series of ALMA proposal preparation workshops from 21 March - 03 April 2024. The goal of these events is to provide users with the knowledge they need to carry out cutting-edge scientific research using the ALMA facilities. We are particularly interested in reaching new users, so no experience with radio astronomy is required to participate!

These ALMA talks are hosted by experienced postdocs and graduate students as part of the ALMA Ambassadors program. Registration for these events is free. The workshops are designed to assist you in proposal preparation and observation planning for ALMA Cycle 11, and may include talks on the following topics:

  • ALMA Basics and Cycle 11 Capabilities
  • Radio Interferometry Basics
  • Cycle 11 Proposal Preparation and the Proposal Review Process
  • Introduction to the ALMA Observing Tool
  • ALMA Data Products, Archive Use, and Notes on the Pipeline Weblog
  • Common Astronomy Software Applications (CASA) Simulations
  • Science-ready Data Products
  • Imaging with CASA

Information on the locations and dates for these workshops is available on the NAASC Community Events webpage.

International Symposium on Space Terahertz Technology (ISSTT)

In 2024, ISSTT’s 33rd edition will be held in Charlottesville, Virginia, USA under the auspices of the National Radio Astronomy Observatory, the University of Virginia, and Virginia Diodes, Inc. (VDI). Sitting at the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, the Charlottesville area is steeped in history and natural beauty.
