ALMA Community Day Event at the Arizona State University

NRAO Live! Event at the University of Wisconsin in Madison



Date: Thursday, March 28, 2024
Time: 8:30am - 5pm
Location: Interdisciplinary Science and Technology Building 4 (ISTB4), 781 E Terrace Mall, Tempe, AZ 85281, Zoom (link to be provided at a later date to registered participants)

The National Radio Astronomy Observatory (NRAO) and ALMA Ambassadors cordially invite you to an ALMA Proposal Workshop at Arizona State University (Tempe). This event is designed for all astronomers, with a particular goal to reach those that do not yet regularly utilize radio/millimeter data in their research. This one-day in-person workshop will provide a primer on millimeter/radio interferometry and the basics of ALMA, a review of how to design and prepare successful ALMA proposals, and an overview of how best to take advantage of the latest resources developed by NRAO/ALMA (such as pipeline processing and simulating interferometric observations). An interactive session in the afternoon will offer a tutorial for preparing and submitting proposals with the ALMA Observing Tutorial, where attendees can start to build a foundation for their own Cycle 11 proposals (deadline April 25). Throughout the day, we will feature some of the latest science results from ALMA, including work from members of the ASU community, and offer a preview of the exciting new capabilities of ALMA coming in the next few years.

A free catered lunch will be provided on-site for registered participants. While attendance for the full day is not required, we hope you will join us for as much of the day as you can. Registration is completely free, but please complete the registration form by Wed. March 20 (sooner is better!) so that we can plan for lunch and ensure that the workshop is best tailored to your interests.

I look forward to welcoming you in Tempe at Arizona State University!

- Patrick Kamieneski (ALMA Ambassador)
