ALMA Community Day Event at NASA JPL

NRAO Live! Event at the University of Wisconsin in Madison


Date: March 27, 2019
Time: 8:30am - 3:00pm
Location: 169-336, NASA JPL, Pasadena

The National Radio Astronomy Observatory (NRAO) and ALMA Ambassadors cordially invite you to an ALMA Proposal Workshop at NASA JPL. This event is designed for all astronomers, and in particular for those who do not regularly use radio data in their research. We encourage participation from summer interns, 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’s capabilities, a brief discussion of mm interferometry fundamentals, a hands-on tutorial session to use CASA to reduce and image interferometric data, and an overview of the proposal preparation and submission processes. In the afternoon, there will be a panel discussion on how we can use ALMA (along with existing archive and publicly available tools such as ADMIT) to prepare future potential JWST proposal to bridge the ground and space-based astronomy actively. 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 20th, so that I have an accurate count for lunches.

I look forward to seeing you at NASA JPL!

- Liton Majumdar (ALMA Ambassador)
