Area Maps & Directions

Scope and Aims:

This meeting will discuss software development plans for ALMA and closely related telescopes. The aim of the workshop is to come up with a set of ideas for software applications that will enhance the science output from ALMA and consortia willing to submit these ideas to ALMA development (both for seed funding via NRAO and, ultimately, full funding via the ALMA board) and/or the NSF directly.

The meeting will be open, but shall remain as focused as possible. There will be relatively few talks (most invited) with longer question periods, and parallel sessions on the second day. Actual examples and demos should be given where possible.

To propose a presentation during the workshop, please contact Mark Lacy at mlacy at
