NRC/NRAO Live! Event at McGill University

NRAO Live! Event at the McGill University

Date: Feb 18-19, 2016
Time: 9am - 5pm
Location: Bell Room (Room 103), Rutherford Physics Building (McGill)

The National Research Council of Canada and the National Radio Astronomy Observatory of the US cordially invite you to a live event at McGill University in Montreal. 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 4 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 Feb 15 so that we have an accurate count for lunches!

We look forward to seeing you in Montreal!
