NRAO Live! Event at the University of Wisconsin in Madison


Date: March 30, 2018
Time: 9am - 5pm
Location: TBD

The National Radio Astronomy Observatory (NRAO) and ALMA Ambassadors cordially invite you to an ALMA Proposal Workshop at University of Iowa. This event is designed for all astronomers, and in particular for those who do not regularly utilize radio data in their research. 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 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 I'd greatly appreciate it if you could sign up before TBD so that I have an accurate count for lunches.

I look forward to seeing you at the University of Iowa!

-Rui Xue (ALMA Ambassador)
