NRAO Live! Event at the McGill University

Date: Mar 4, 2016
Time: 9am - 5pm
Location: Stockbridge Hall rm 124

The National Radio Astronomy Observatory cordially invites you to a live event at UMass Amherst. This event is designed for all astronomers, and in particular for those who do not regularly utilize radio data in their research. The workshop will be one to two days long, with an overview of the NRAO facilities, have a brief discussion of mm interferometry and an overview of the proposal preparation and submission processes. In the afternoon there will be a hands on session to prepare proposals for the upcoming ALMA Cycle 4 deadline. If there is time, on the second day we will dive into interferometric data taken with ALMA and use CASA to reduce and analyze the data. Lunch will be provided for registered participants on the first day.

Registration is free, but we'd greatly appreciate it if you could sign up before March 1 so that we have an accurate count for lunches!

We look forward to seeing you in Amherst!
