The National Radio Astronomy Observatory (NRAO) and ALMA Ambassadors cordially invite you to an ALMA Proposal Workshop at the University of Florida. 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 all interested scientists (with or without a background in radio astronomy). The 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. There will be a hands-on session to prepare proposals for the upcoming ALMA Cycle 9 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 by March 29 so that I have an accurate count for lunches and snacks.

I look forward to seeing you in Gainsville!

- Allison Towner (ALMA Ambassador)


All attendees are expected to abide by the NRAO Code of Conduct.
