NRAO Community Day at the Florida Institute of Technology

Date: March 9-10, 2015
Time: 9am - 5pm
Location: FIT, Olin Physical Sciences Center

The National Radio Astronomy Observatory (NRAO) cordially invites you to a NRAO Community Event at the Florida Institute of Technology. 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 two days long. On the first day we will provide 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 3 deadline. 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.

Registration is free, but we'd greatly appreciate it if you could sign up before March 4 so that we have an accurate count for lunches!

Florida Tech is located in Melbourne, on Florida's east coast, about an hour's drive from Orlando and 3 hours from Miami or Tampa.  It features excellent weather year-round and beautiful beaches.  Florida Tech is happy to host this event!
