ALMA Community Day Event at the University of California, Berkeley

NRAO Live! Event at the University of Wisconsin in Madison


Date: March 28th, 2019
Time: 9am - 5:00pm
Location: Room 121, Campbell Hall, UC Berkeley (NOTE NEW LOCATION!)

The National Radio Astronomy Observatory (NRAO) and ALMA Ambassadors cordially invite you to a one-day ALMA Proposal Workshop at UC Berkeley on March 28th. This event is designed for all astronomers, and in particular for those who do not regularly utilize radio data in their research as well as those who would like to get hands-on training using ALMA proposal tools. We highly encourage participation from graduate students and postdocs. Lunch will be provided for registered participants.
This one-day workshop will provide: 
1) an overview of ALMA including new capabilities available in Cycle 7
2) a brief introduction to millimeter interferometry
3) a discussion on proposal preparation and the submission processes
4) hands-on training with CASA and the ALMA Observing Tool. 
The afternoon will be devoted entirely to hands-on sessions focused on preparing proposals for the upcoming ALMA Cycle 7 deadline, during which we will dive into imaging and simulations of ALMA interferometric data using CASA. 
Registration is free, but note that the number of attendees is limited. I'd greatly appreciate it if you could sign up before March 22nd so that I have an accurate count for lunches.
I look forward to seeing you at UC Berkeley!
