Spatio-spectral Modeling of Interferometric Data: Preparing for the Wideband Era

NRAO Live! Event at the University of Wisconsin in Madison



Date: May 28-31, 2024
Time: TBD
Location: NAASC/NRAO, Charlottesville, VA


Applications are now closed
Explore the intricacies of spatio-spectral modeling of interferometric data with us from May 28-31, 2024, at the NAASC! This workshop will focus on identifying common challenges for modeling interferometric data across key science areas, paying particular attention to, but not limited to, the tools needed for handling increasingly complex data from the ALMA Wideband Sensitivity Upgrade (WSU).

Topics include:

  • Inferring physical properties from spatio-spectral data.
  • Limitations of image plane modeling and the complementarity of visibility modeling.
  • Solving challenges with handling large data volumes and cluster processing.

The workshop will include talks, posters, and interactive hacking sessions, culminating in a curated database of publicly available codes for ALMA data analysis and an outline for future ALMA community development efforts.

We especially encourage applications from PhD students, postdocs, and early-career researchers. Some travel support for early-career researchers will be available as needed for participation.

We gratefully acknowledge financial support from North American ALMA Science Center (NAASC) and the National Science Foundation under awards AST-2102405 and AST-2102625.


All attendees are expected to abide by the NRAO Code of Conduct.
