Data Reduction and Publication Support

The North American ALMA Science Center (NAASC) provides travel and lodging support during your visit to NRAO headquarters in Charlottesville, VA from investigators of successful ALMA programs or archival researchers.  If you need any help in reducing your data, or just a quiet week away in Central Virginia to finish writing up your next ALMA paper, consider coming for a face-to-face visit to work closely with our data analysts and scientific staff.  For more information and to request a visit, please see https://science.nrao.edu/facilities/alma/visits and submit a ticket to the face-to-face visits department of the ALMA Helpdesk. Come visit us!
 
You can also consult with our EPO team to see if your results would have broader public interest and to explore outreach opportunities.

Feedback on ALMA data analysis tools is greatly appreciated. Please communicate any obstacles encountered in the path from data delivery to publication by submitting a Helpdesk ticket. In particular, has a lack of computing resources, software for analysis, visualization, plotting, or other "tools" proven to be a difficulty? NRAO thanks you in advance for your feedback.
