ALMA Community Day Event at the Universidad Diego Portales

NRAO Live! Event at the University of Wisconsin in Madison


Date: March 28, 2018
Time: 9:30am - 5pm
Location: Biblioteca Nicanor Parra, Room B41, Vergara 324, Santiago

The National Radio Astronomy Observatory (NRAO) and ALMA Ambassadors cordially invite you to an ALMA Proposal Workshop at Universidad Diego Portales. This event is designed for all astronomers, and in particular for those who do not regularly utilize radio data in their research. We encourage participation from graduate students and junior postdocs, but we welcome any astronomer with no radio background to attend. The one-day workshop will provide an overview of ALMA including new capabilities, 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 6 deadline. We will dive into imaging and simulation of ALMA interferometric data using CASA. Lunch will be provided for registered participants.

Registration is free, but note that the number of attendees 


is limited. I'd greatly appreciate it if you could sign up before March 21st so that I have an accurate count for lunches (included for registered participants). Depending of the number of registrants on the waiting list, I may be able to offer a second workshop (TBD).

I look forward to seeing you at the Universidad Diego Portales!
